Well, I used to only spin natural. Now I prefer to buy white so I can dye it. But I do also like a nice colored fleece. And I have even sat and snipped off all the bleached tips. So I can't do the vote, because I like so many fleeces for diffrent reasons,and I sure would buy a fleece if it had great crimp,no veg, and the color would not matter.For me it's cost and if the stash can handle it.
I love colored fleeces, a lot. Like WIHH fading doesn't really bother me too much. But, also like WIHH I'm weird about black. It is hard enough to find a real black and faded black is not an option. I just bought a black Merino fleece that is gorgeous.
I don't mind the color fade so much as these tips can be brittle. If the tips are strong and don't break, then I don't mind the color .... except for the brown tips of a black fleece. I want a black fleece to be black.
