Breed Study Kit
Breed Study Kit
Have you ever wanted to start your own breed study—to explore the properties of different types of wool? It's a project on many a spinner's bucket list, but tracking down samples of a variety of wools and washing them can be a huge task. With this kit, you can spin samples of 14 different out-of-the-ordinary types of wool, types you might not even find at a wool show (and certainly not in sampler quantities). Supplement with your own basic wools to create a personal library of wool, then crochet an Adventures in Fleece afghan to admire your project! With In Sheep's Clothing and The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook, you'll learn the details of what makes each wool special, and the Handspinning Rare Wools video offers insights into understanding and spinning the more unusual fibers on the list. Find a new favorite fiber, improve your spinning skills, and explore the amazing world of wool with this amazing kit!

- Great resource and useful information
I would have given this 5 starts, but the Fiber Source book was listed on my invoice as out of stock and they weren't getting any more. This was very disappointing as this was a big part of the bundle. I'm having to get this book from a difference source as I'm getting ready to present a program at my guild on the different breeds of sheep and what their wool is best used for.
The samples are a very generous size and the other materials are great. (Posted on 9/17/2015)
