Wyoming isn’t wine country (though some intrepid growers might disagree). It’s wool country.

As of the 2017 Census of Agriculture, Wyoming ranked number one in domestic wool production. But most of that wool is sold as a commodity in an international market, leaving the state before it is processed.

The Wyoming Wool Initiative sees this situation as an opportunity. It all started with a simple question, explains Whit Stewart, head of the UW Sheep Program and co-founder of the project: How do we help people get more for their wool?
