Fleece Study

During the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival 2010, my husband and I had the great pleasure of meeting Jackie Bland.  We attended Jackie’s lecture: Wool in Its Forty Manifestations. She discussed sheep breeds, how to maintain pastures, how to care for sheep and of course the differences in their fleece (fiber).

Jackie has put together a wonderful kit called: Jackie Bland’s Fleece Study.  The kit includes over 40 fleece in 1 ounce sample sizes, including rare breeds.  In addition, the kit includes a binder full of information about each sheep breed, plus worksheets.  This is a hand spinner’s dream come true!

Follow my progress, as I embark on my own 40 Fleece Study.
