Fleece, Roving, & Yarn

Recently Shorn and Showing Their True Colours

Fleeces are available in white and a wide range of colours. They range from medium fine to medium strong with most in the finer medium strong category. Most have nice luster, defined crimp, and a silky hand. Sheep were not coated, but care was taken to keep them as clean as possible. Fleeces are sold very well skirted. Whole fleeces usually weighed from four to eight pounds.  Volume discounts, part fleeces, and less expensive wool may be available. Every attempt is made to match the fleece to the requirements of the purchaser.  A good description of the type of fleece desired and end use
is helpful. Feedback from my customers is appreciated. I was a supplier to spinners and felters from 1990 to 2008, and had a very positive response to my products.  Though I encouraged the return of unsatisfactory fleece, this never happened!  Fleece is also available washed and carded into roving in a range of natural colours and strengths including two tone roving that spins into a wonderful variegated yarn either left natural or over-dyed. Some dyed  roving in primary colours is also available. The price of both roving, yarn, and raw wool depends on the overall quality and colour and the quantity desired and will be comparable to that of other local vendors for similar products. I am still in the process of setting up my space and sorting out my products in my new Nanaimo location and hope to have more information on line about my products before long. The yarn I have had processed in anticipation of my move to the island is fairly fine 2 or 3 ply ( I believe aprox. 2800-3600 yds/# in the singles). I have yarn in white (including some lovely Michigan Cormo) and shades of tan and grey to rich red and chocolate browns.
