hope you're well.
Wondered if people wanted to share where they find supplies to make all their wool and felt goodies.
I buy quite a bit of my felt rovings from a local wool store called 'Woollsy Trading Post' on Shannon Ave in Geelong West (I don't think they have an online store) and sometimes I pick up some fair trade felt balls on ebay!

Lincraft,Spotlight(only when on sale)
Op-shops in the form of balls, but I reclaim wool from any wonderful op-shop knitted or crocheted garment I can lay my hands on.(must be a great colour though)
Takes a lot of time and patience but I could not afford it otherwise.
A friend is swapping me some of her stash for one of these:

I'm actually looking for some merino (or BFL) superwash merino in semi-bulk amounts, like 2kg-10kg. I've been looking around the net but I keep coming up with US suppliers and the postage would be a killer! Anyone know where I might be able to find some?

I have been buying my felt from benziebazaar.etsy.com
The quality and colours are great. Now that the US dollar is giving us better value for our money I have found it cheaper to buy from overseas.
Sometimes the quality in Spotlight or Riot Art is OK too but I can't always guarantee the colour variety there. I am always looking for new colours. I buy a lot of supplies from Etsy.
