The Sheepspot Fleece Club
The Sheepspot Fleece Club is a three-month subscription program that delivers 100 grams of premium washed fleece right to your door. I personally select and hand-wash each fleece. And, of course, since educating spinners about the wonderful variety of sheep and wool is a cornerstone of Sheepspot's mission, each shipment in your subscription will contain wool from a different breed of sheep.
This club is perfect for you if:
- you want to learn whether you enjoy preparing you own wool before you take the plunge and commit to an entire fleece
- you want to see and work with some excellent fleeces in order to learn what to look for when shopping for fleeces on your own
- you know that you enjoy combing or carding washed wool, but know that you don't enjoy washing it yourself
- you love doing your own prep, but don't have room to store large amounts of wool
The fleeces I select for this club are all exceptional handspinning fleeces. All have come for the flocks of caring shepherds who love their animals and treat them with respect. All are sound and strong. I seek out rare breeds and rich, natural colors. Then I wash them with love and care—and Unicorn Power Scour, a gentle, effective, and eco-friendly wool wash.
I've designed this club to take all the guess work and uncertainty out of choosing and washing fleece. As a member, you'll get three packages of beautiful wool, in April, May, and June; shipping costs are included in the price. Each shipment will include at least 100 grams of washed wool, and a cover letter telling you about the breed, the shepherd, and the flock from which it came.
Memberships in the fleece club cost $109 USD and will become available on Saturday, March 25 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern. Because sheep, and thus fleeces, are only so big, just ten memberships will be available this quarter.
