In each episode of the Woolful podcast, you'll meet some incredible people from this community we love so much. This podcast is unlike any other, focusing on the fiber industry as a whole, from sheep to sweater, including guests from every facet of the craft and industry. Knitters, dyers, fiber processors, shepherds, designers, spinners, proprietors and so many more. Think of it as a fireside chat. A casual conversation between friends that share similar passions. Each episode includes a special guest or two, artisan giveaways and sponsors, and “man on the street” style Q & A. The goal here, is to provide an intimate look into this world we love so much and keep it simple. No long intros. No busy talk. Just get to the good stuff.

Exceptionally produced & deeply moving
This is one of my favorite podcasts. The producer, Ashley Yousling, has done an incredible job-her sound quality, thoughtful questions, conversational progression and her ability to interview people in a way that builds a very thorough story of the fiber folk that she interviews is phenomenal. There are a lot of bad podcasts out there. This one is fantastic! Ashley has generously crafted a very professional yet emotional podcast. It is easy to listen to, deeply moving and inspiring. I am a young professional who studied Fibers & Textiles in college. I really connect to her story and those of the people she features in each episode. Sometimes, I feel pretty alone in this world. When I listen to Ashley’s podcast, I feel connected to the world and reminded that my kind of people, are out there. Thank you Ashley Yousling!
Love this podcast!!
I’m so happy to have just recently found Woolful. And then to find out you have podcasts as well was the cherry on top! :) This was such a great podcast. And I feel the same way as you about IG and FB, where it’s so wonderful to go through inspiring image after inspiring image on IG and it’s so positive.
Ok, onto the next podcast. I have lots of catching up to do.
I heart Woolful!
I have really enjoyed each episode so far. Ashley has introduced me to some wonderful new people in the global fiber community and let me get to know better some of my favorite designers and shop owners. I can't wait to listen to future episodes and see what else I'll discover!
