Ashland Bay is a fiber wholesaler that has been is business for many years. Chances are good that the base fiber your favorite dyer uses and the undyed fiber you buy at your local spinning shop are from Ashland Bay.
They have just started a cool series on their blog for the Year of the Sheep. Every other week they are focusing on a different breed with a blog post highlighting history, and characteristics of the breed and wool. There is also a a breed study card to download with history, characteristics, fleece facts and specifications to use to spin your own breed study.
A very nice resource especially since it’s fleece shopping time!
Have you bought any fleeces this season yet?
