Jewel Ranch, Colorado
8 September 2016
John Jewell and his family grew some of the fiber that we are using to produce garments now. John produced the highest-price lot of wool ever bought ... $4.00 per pound, plus lab costs. Typical wool was going for $0.65 per pound.
As has become usual with our ranchers, John's family produces breeding stock, and the wool that he sells is more proof of his bloodlines, and breeding stock is his primary product.
The Jewell family hosted my son Zack and me in January of 2016, and we took these pictures during that visit.
