mooshie! omg! i'm so jealous! look at all those full bags of gorgeous rovings! ... how do you like the stuff from sheep shed? i've wanted to order from there for awhile, but didn't know if it would be worth it

I really like the stuff from sheep shed.  so far I've used some of the black/white, the white wool, some superwash, and a little of the brown white, all of which I like.
I've also used a little of the spinning bell, however I'm not real crazy about the spinning bell, but that may be due to the fact that I don't really know what to do with it, and I didn't know what it was when I ordered it.  I spun up about an ounce of it that I carded, and wasn't in love.  but I wonder if I need to spin it differently? and I haven't used ony of the mohair yet, but it feels nice.  I have a pound of it so I hope I like it when I use it  Cheesy  HTH

wow, check out all the stashes!  I just supplemented my fiber stash with a trip to The Mannings, and brought home this:

my stash, at any given moment, usually contains a bump of Merino, several pounds of each: camel down, mohair, scoured fleeces, gobs and gobs of sparkle, and whatever fiber blends I buy on Etsy.  I've also been hoarding bamboo- yum!  I love the shelving you all have- I store all of mine in plastic bags and bins.


wow that's a nice stash!  Smiley love the sparklies

Here is my stash:

The empty boxes will soon be filled with some fiber I ordered this week...


More fiber...


Coarse wool stash and felting fiber stash.

I'm very jealous of all your big stashes!  Grin
But mine is also huge, considering that I live in one small room...  Smiley

Edit: I've bought more of these plastic boxes, my stash has nearly doubled it's size... The fiber is taking over my room...

I love those wire bins!!!  Gonna have to slowly acquire me some of them.  I have flat wire racks that run the length of my fiber room and things get so disorganized.

I've been wanting DH to build wood bins similar to those cubes, but I think I'll let him pass on that to give him more time to build my tables (one to hold the table looms, another for the picker and carder)

I took new pictures of my stash, but now I can't find the cord to unlead them to the laptop!)

I love how you guys store your fiber! Right now my stash is all over the place. Not ideal! One of my summer goals is to get the closet cleared out so I can fill it with fiber. Hopefully soon I will have pictures to share...

finally!  I'm starting to tame my fiber stash.  I don't really have much of a yarn stash, so that wasn't a problem.  Here's my progress so far (ziplocs are my FRIENDS!)




The few bits of un-bagged Merino are getting used this afternoon- they'll be dyed or carded.
