What would you do with a 676-pound bale of fleece? Clara Parkes wasn’t completely sure either, even after it arrived; but just like any good knitter, she had some…ideas. What would be any knitter’s dream came true for Carla, ---or would come true--as soon as she could cut the straps off the huge bale without the ball of rather dirty fluffy stuff exploding all over the warehouse she found big enough to hold such a delivery… This great sheep adventure from Maine to Wisconsin will have you thinking about an industry that is still necessary but often forgotten. If it is made of fiber, it was most likely made on machines where the parts have been pieced together (and often held together) with duck tape after being found or rescued from mills that have long ago shuttered. Before reading this book, I had no idea how long a journey fleece went on to reach my needles, What ensued is a surprising adventure, history lesson and a behind-the-scenes tour of a fading industry that I could not put down.— From Shannon's Picks
