Fiber location
So I'm looking at eBay listings and found a "Farm store" They have fiber listed for 1.25 per oz because they say it comes form the neck and legs. Is fiber from these areas not as good quality?

You are correct. Usually these areas are considered to be of lower quality. The best fiber usually comes from the shoulder area right behind the neck and the areas to the side of the spine.
