Articles & Professional Content

Knitting Resource Excerpt

Sheep Breed Spotlight: Merino

This article was written for a local yarn shop to post as a resource on their website. Many of the shops products featured yarns with different kinds of wools. They wanted to educate their customers about the uses, features, and qualities of each different type. This article was the first in a series, each talking about a different breed of sheep.


While educational, the articles were meant to be easy to understand and conversational in tone, so that the information was casually digestible and entertaining.
