Wool

It's one of our goals at The Fibre Garden to carry as wide a range of sheep breed rovings and top in their natural glory as we can get our hands on. Spinners seem to love the selection, and we are always trying to hunt down new additions to the lineup. There's more to life than just Merino, lovely as it is. Consider some of the more obscure breeds we present, such as California Red, Karakul or Black Welsh Mountain. Each has its own unique characteristics and uses. All of them are good subjects for the dyepot too, including the browns and blacks that offer all sorts of unique colour effects to the dyer.

We've tried to describe the breeds here, but more information can be found in two books: "In Sheep's Clothing" and "The Knitter's Book of Wool" are listed in our book category (under More> Books> Fibre Prep), both being indespensible references for the serious spinner.
