Shop: Golden Grove Farm
What in Class: Navajo-Churro Fleece
For this class, I picked our fleece from Alyssa at Golden Grove Farm. She’s based out of New York and produces some scrummy fleeces.
Additional Navajo-Churro Resource: I also like to get fleeces from Sam Cunningham who has previously sat on the board for the Navajo Churro Sheep Association. She has beautiful fleeces and a wealth of knowledge. https://cunningtonfarms.com/

What in Class: Karakul Fleece
Karen has some beautiful Karakuls in her flock and she sells with the hand spinner in mind. She is great to work with.

What in Class: Icelandic Fleeces
I’ve been working with Terri for a few years now and she is brilliant. She’s a scientist at heart and has been working on flock improvements for hand-spinners. She’s also done a few pieces for the Ply blog and has an upcoming article in the science issue.

What in Class: Soay and Boreray Fleeces

Shop: Clemes & Clemes
What in Class: Lock Pop, Cards
Henry and Roy are gems of the fiber community. They had a booth at PlyAway if you made it to the vendor hall. They produce some really high quality fiber tools. I’m a fan of their curve-backed cotton cards in particular. And the lock pop is a game changer.
