Mill ends: The sheep shed studio has Brown Sheep Mill Ends at $6/pound. Carol Lee is fast, and nice, and the rovings are good, but....like I said, not the most consistent fiber. Still - *$6* per pound can't be beat!

Mary Pratt has really nice stuff, so does Rose at Red Barn Farm (BL - I *love* her BL!) I think her website is www.redbarnfarm.net, but I could be wrong. She's on eBay as Red Barn Farm, if that helps. The Woolery sometimes has raw fleeces; Woodland Woolworks has some grey rovings listed in their latest catalog.

I do like how the green yarn turned out, but I won't use it - too much "bad vibes" from my feelings as I was spinning it. *g* There's 97 yards there - it'd make a nice hat, I think, but neither of my kids do green.

I saw those Brown Sheep Mill ends! For some reason I balked at the shipping costs... I see now that I was being foolish. Out of superstition, I predraft like a crazy person, so I should be okay with less than perfect fiber. Once my "business" money recovers from being cleaned out by the drum carder, I think I'll be snapping up some black and some brown and some grey rovings.

Green is very hot right now. You might inform them of that.
