As hand spinners, dyers and felters, we have the distinct privilege of working
with any type of fiber we can get our hands on. It’s like cooking from scratch.
You know exactly what is in the end product and can be assured of a (somewhat) predictable
outcome.

As 2015 is the year of the sheep, we thought we would
have a little fun! Starting the second week of July every other week, Ashland Bay will highlight a breed specific wool top. Along with being
on sale for that 2 week period
, each breed will get its own fiber card (example below). The
card will have a photo of the breed, brief history, micron count, staple
length, fleece information and plenty of room for personal notes! These cards
will create an excellent resource to
add to your spinning library and can
be used as a marketing tool to introduce new fibers to your customers.  The best part is these fiber cards will be
available for download right from our website! Be sure to check back the second week of July for our first highlighted breed!
