Wool Ewe Keep Me Warm? Video

What is wool and where does it come from? How does it get from the sheep to the sweater? Why do shepherds use dogs to herd sheep? These questions and many more are answered for "ewe" in this 30-minute video about wool production and processing from the Gee Whiz in Agriculture series. Journey through the creative industrial process that brings us wool clothing, blankets, and other products, and take a trip to the state fair to see many different breeds of sheep and learn how to shear.
