The Norwegian folk song, Kom skal vi klippe sauen i dag (Come shall we clip the sheep today) is a classic tune that describes the process of going from sheep’s wool to all sorts of clothes. Join Nordic culture educator Kari Tauring for a deeper look at the process of wool production from the mythic, cosmological, and cultural practices. Learn the song and even do a little dance around clipping, carding, spinning, dyeing, knitting, and weaving that essential ingredient for survival in the Northlands – wool.
