NJ Fibershed Blanket Project – Blankets For Sale

The background story below – to purchase go to my online store.

The NJ Fibershed Blanket Project is a cooperative project between small farms raising fiber animals for their fleeces. This is one of their major initiatives to bring NJ fiber farmers together, and to highlight locally produced fiber products.Using wool collected from farms located within the NJ Fibershed region, the program provides a way for small-scale fiber producers to sell their fiber.  Their wool was processed and made into items that can be marketed to customers seeking local products and who want to support small-scale, sustainable farms
Over 400 lbs of wool was collected and sorted to meet criteria for quality to ensure a final product that is beautiful, warm, and enjoyable to own.


The wool was washed in New Hampshire, spun in Maine, and handwoven by ComfortCloth Weaving in upstate New York.

Featuring a unique and modern design with three solid color sections representing the three regions of New Jersey: North, Central, and South Jersey. The gradual transition between color blocks is a playful nod to the fundamental New Jersey debate of where, exactly Central Jersey starts and ends. The nine lines in the transition represent the nine farms who contributed wool to the project.  Two versions were woven – the one with a white background is sold out but the one with a grey background is still available (this is my favorite of the two).

The NJ Fibershed Blanket measures 78″ x 58″ (2m x 1.47 m) and weighs 2.5 lb (1.13 kg). The blanket price is $325.  Purchase in my online shop.

Fleece Locks

Fleeces with lock structure are available for use as doll’s hair, Santa’s Beards or art yarn/ tail spinning. Lock length is ~4 inches.

Hand washed adult/young adult mohair: $4/ounce  for doll’s hair/Santa Beards

Machine washed adult/young adult mohair (some loss of lock structure): $2/ounce  for spinning, natural white and grey as well as dyed colors

Hand washed (Blue Faced Leicester) wool: $2/ounce for spinning or doll’s hair/Santa’s Beards – natural colors only: white, greys, browns

It is very difficult to keep locks intact through the washing process particularly if the raw fleece contains any VM.  My standard washing process includes prewashing to remove the dirt and some of the grease (lanolin in wool), followed by hand picking to remove most of the VM, followed by a final wash to remove all (or nearly all) of the remaining grease.  Washing is done in a washing machine for soaking and spinning (ie- no agitation).  This gives an extremely clean fleece that can be spun directly from the fleece.  The less VM in the original fleece, the less damage there is to the lock structure.  Most fleeces are not clean enough to produce clean intact locks.  Only fleeces with low VM and good lock structure are hand washed to retain as much lock structure as possible.  That’s why locks are so expensive and why they are not always available.   I will sell raw locks if you want to wash them yourself at a substantial discount.
