I’m very proud to announce the arrival of some new fleece breeds at www.SarasTexturecrafts.com … Zwartbles and Massam (which has previously just been in top, or batt form).
Zwartbles can be found here at http://sarastexturecrafts.com/products/4138—zwartbles-fleece.aspx and as you can see without prep just begs to be spun!
If you did choose to prep this you would discard some of the coarser hairs for spinning, but don’t remove too much texture as it would be a shame to loose the colour changes.
I think this would also be very good for feltmaking too and if there’s any left I intend to make some batts for blended texture.
As it’s not a lanolin rich fleece, it won’t take much washing so great to try out if you have never washed a fleece before.
Let me know what you think if you try some.
This beautifully lustrous Massam fleece is an award winning fleece I found at a sheep show. Having tracked down the Farmer i realise now that she keeps sheep mostly for fleece production, so I really hope you will like the first of many fleeces from this source.
I shall visit the farm soon, so hope to add a few new breed fleeces to the shop!
You can find the Massam at http://sarastexturecrafts.com/products/4136—massam-fleece.aspx

Here is the next part of my spindle spinning video tutorials. This one dicusses joining fibres during spinning to extend your yarn. Written by Sara of www.SarasTextureCrafts.com
Have you ever thought of spinning to make your own socks?
Here’s where to buy your fibres and dyes;
If you prefer me to make batts for you, then check out my Custom Batts and Blend Service.
Romney is a lovely fibre to work with in felt making or spinning, so I have been hard at work finding a local Farmer to bring us the best of qualities. I’m very pleased to say that I have found that special farmer and have taken delivery of my freshly sheared Romney Marsh (Kent Romney) fleeces!
Please do take a look at them under my Kent Romney fibre shop page.
Creative carding packs are geared towards those with a drum carder, who wish to start spinning, or felting with ‘art batts’.
30g is just enough to make one well blended, wool-based batt. Each pack has a list of ingregients, just in case you need more from my Fibre shop.
If you have colours in mind then please type these into the options box below and I will try to match these as best as possible from my stock.
I will be making a tutorial for carding at some point so do keep an eye on the Learning Centre.
