Ohio Valley has some good prices on merino top, although I see they have gone up a bit since last year:

If you are looking for wholesale, you can get better prices with some vendors, but you need to order a *lot*.

R. H. Lindsay is my "go to" fiber supplier.

I guess it depends on what you consider a large amount of fiber ...  if you only want a couple of pounds, then go with fiber mills or Carol at Sheep Shed Studio.  If you want 15 pounds of more, then R.H. Lindsay is a no brainer.

And I go to Flannelberry Creek, because it's Canadian.  They've got some really nice fibres, and the Shetland top is beautiful, both to dye, and to spin.

How cool is it that Colleen & Lonna teamed up!!!

MLF, do you happen to know what kind of wool the white carded sliver at RH Lindsay is? Or the domestic top?

PW the White Carded Sliver:

White Scoured Carded Sliver, Product #21  We've taken a blend of Romney and Perendale to create a soft, bouncy sliver. First we scour the wool to eliminate grease and dirt. Then the wool is carded and gilled into a sliver (rope-like) form. This wool is recommended for learning the nuance of any handcraft application - spinning, felting, doll making, or needle felting. Specifications: processed roving, white, semi-lustrous. Staple length 3.5-5 inches (80-125mm). Fiber count 48s (32 micron).  $9.00 per pound

Domestic 56s

Domestic 56s Wool Top, Product #91  Made from a Heinz 57 variety of breeds which reflects sheep raising in the eastern half of the United States. The colored but bulky nature of this product is perfect for those who want a familiar wool handle. It is ready for use in spinning and felting and priced for classes and bulk use projects. Specifications: processed top, average white. Staple length 2.5-3.5 inches (60-70 mm). Fiber count 54-56s (28-29 micron).  $7.50 per pound

If you go to their "Products" page, they give a more detailed description of their products.

Only online.  I lost contact with Colleen (aka Flannelberry) a number of years ago.  Lonna (aka Frazzlehead or Applejack Creek) and I have been good online friends for a long, long time.

Thanks MLF! Not like I need more fiber, especially since the wool cube has been expanding....
