I have a question for you other spinners out there.
Okay, in my constant cruising of ebay I came across some mill ends for a really good price, so click click, I buy some (personal stash enhancement!). They get here and I take them out of the bag and WHOA HOLY DAMN, this is NICE stuff. Like, the softness is on par with the sock hop roving I've gotten from crown mountain farms. And I think, 'hey, maybe I should dye some of this and put it on Etsy instead of keeping it all for my personal stash!' so you know, I can justify buying fiber I don't really need.
The problem is, most of the rovings are in somewhat 'short' lengths - 5-10 feet, between 1-3 ounces or so. I like to sell in nice standard 4 ounce bundles. So my question to you other spinners is: If you bought a bundle of fiber, would it bother you if it was all not in one continuous length, but 2 or 3 lengths? Would you not bother buying it at all for that reason? Would a deciding factor be if it was cheaper than you'd normally expect for the same fiber otherwise (IE: Sold for less because it was not one length and it's a mill end)?
I'd really appreciate some feedback, and I figure there's probably no better place to ask than here. Anyway, even if you don't answer, thanks for at least reading this far!
