WOAH! 17 cents an ounce is stealing it! You should buy as much as they'll let you.

If you go to you can buy merino roving there. It is the stuff that Malabrigo is made out of, so you can have your own mmmm for a TON cheaper.

I tend to buy mill ends on eBay for my source. You can get tons of brown sheeps mill ends, which is fun to spin. Around shearing season you will see alot of raw wool and alpaca on there, too.

No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.

I keep a spreadsheet of all my fiber purchases. The most I've ever paid for roving was $4.00 an ounce for some pima cotton. The least I've ever paid was 23 cents an ounce for some yucky, raw, uncleaned wool.

Over the past two or three years, I've bought 400 ounces of roving, spending a total of $462.43

The average price for the roving I've bought is $1.59 an ounce.
