I have sent boxes of the stuff from Arizona to Tennessee to Canada.  How much do you want and what size do you need?

Is this sheep's wool?

It's the fleece.  "wool" is the fuzzy part,, "fleece" includes the skin.

If this is what folks are using to apply dyes and finishes, I would love some. Glad to pay for smallish pieces.

Is 10 pounds of it too much to have on hand?

Hey @bikermutt07 I got some from the colonel myself and haven't touched it yet. It's still in the box haha. Mine was about 5 lbs.

So10 lbs will last you a good while I think. I will be using it for antiquing and finishing. I just haven't done any for a while :( makes me sad.

... and use Nitril gloves when applying dyes so your hands don't come out the same color as what you're dyeing.

That's a pro tip from cowboycolonel guys! Seems simple right? Yeah, I once dyed my hands black because I thought gloves are for wimps! Not true, walking around with black hands, that's a bit embarrassing haha.
