Fiberdog Fibers is now a Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em provider!

  • A braid of grey wool roving gathered by a thin black ribbon.
  • A braid of grey wool roving in the sun.
  • A braid of grey wool roving gathered in a spiral.
  • An unwashed grey fleece of a sheep.

Today I am proud to announce that I am now an official fiber provider for the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em initiative of The Livestock Conservancy (for more information go to rarewool.org)!

As you might already know, this initiative is an effort to get endangered breeds back into the minds and hands of fiber artists and I personally think it is a wonderful way to experience how different the wool of different sheep actually is.

So being a small part of this makes me very proud!

I currently offer Casper, a naturally-colored CVM/Romeldale roving, but I plan to add yarn as well as dyed versions of both roving and yarn in the future.

There is an option in the product listing for SE2SE participation, just make sure you also buy at least 4oz to qualify for your passport sticker!

As all of my products, I have created these roving braids from the raw fleece by hand, meaning I bought a fleece here in the US, washed it, picked it and carded it. You can certainly not say there is a lack of passion in my products for you!

One of the pictures above also shows the fleece itself and if you are curious about the sheep, her shepherd gave me a picture to use in the product listing.
