Frequently Asked Questions
What is this all about?
What is your roadmap for this site?
- Collect information from the community. Breed photos, raw and washed wool photos, personal stories on how to wash, prep, or dye fiber. Photos of dye jobs you are particularly proud of. Etc. If it has to do with fiber, I want to collect it here for organization and display.
- Once I have a good amount of information, I will start organizing it for display on the website. The site will be organized in the following way:
- Search by breed
- Washing Basics
- Fiber Preparation
- Dye Basics
- Assuming the site takes off, I will need to cover my costs by selling advertising. This will be curated advertising by the fiber community professionals and will always be relevant to what this website is about. These will include occasional banner ads on the site.
- As the site grows, additional ideas may be presented and added to this roadmap.
Why not just source your information from books and other websites?
