Filling Fiber Artists’ Palettes

Filling Fiber Artists' Palettes

Shepherds with small flocks are producing a wonderful array of wool fibers in a palette full of colors and textures. Taking that fleece to a local wool festival to sell, or marketing it directly to customers can be difficult for the shepherd who has no experience in the world of fiber arts. This niche market is quite different from the bulk wholesale market where wool is graded and packed up with other fibers of similar qualities and then heads out to large industrial mills. Fiber artists judge each fleece on its individual merits and characteristics and each must stand on its own. Learn tips and suggestions for making sure you put your best fleeces forward to represent you and your flock.
