While we may view 46 years as a long run, the Festival reflects traditions reaching back to the domestication of sheep some 10,000 years ago. Over thousands of years of human history people all over the world have shepherded and selectively bred sheep for various desired characteristics for food and fiber. Their work, their vision, their ingenuity and appreciation of the utility and aesthetic qualities of sheep and wool are the foundation of the spectacular array of breeds, and types and uses of wool, and technologies for working with wool, that we gather here to enjoy together. The festival connects us to this long history, to its diverse geographical and cultural roots, and to each other when we gather to immerse ourselves in sheep and wool. To us, this reflects an inherent inclusivity that is so deeply woven into the fabric of the Festival that perhaps we forget to say it.
