    Thanks for all your posts. Are spinners more interested in raw fleece or things like roving, combed top? I am a new owner of a flock of Shetland Sheep and was wondering how to best market the fiber.

  3. Which sheep breed in your experience produces the easiest fleece to spin? Also I would love to know if shearing sheep is difficult?

    • Great questions! There is an awesome new book out called Raw Material that’s about a woman’d quest to become a shepherdess . . . you might enjoy it! I’m tearing through the chapters whenever I have a sec and she is a wonderful storyteller!
