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.

Perfect Podcast For Me!
I’m so excited that Woolful exists! I’m a weaver, knitter and fiber lover to name a few. I discovered Woolful through Instagram, and I’m in love! I can relate to very person interviewed and am learning so much. I’m really grateful to have my horizons expanded on these topics that I’m so passionate about! Rock on Woolful!!!
A charm and a delight.
Fantastic interviews with amazing fiber artists by someone who really is a fan but isn't so nervous they talk more than the guest. Really in depth interviews with fantastic sound! What a treat. Keep up the great work.
Great new podcast!
Love the format of interviewing fiber people of all types. It is fascinating to hear the stories, most of which you would never know about without this podcast. It will also be fun and interesting to follow the journey of the Woolful mill. Very professionally produced and she allows her guests the room to tell their story in their own way with only thoughtful interjections and questions. I am also learning so much about breed specific yarns and locally sourced fleeces. It's the slow fiber movement! Can't recommend this highly enough. Love it.
