Question from sockmom529, “I just started spinning this past year. I was at Maryland Sheep and Wool this year and looked at the fleeces, but didn’t take the plunge. Now, listening to you guys I regret not getting one. So…I was wondering if either one of you have bought a fleece online?
Also, how do you decide whether to card or comb a particular fleece?
Been watching you all for years…love the podcast!”
