    It depends on what you're selling. Raw wool or processed, from what breed or colours of wool you have, and in what area might narrow down your options too. Most sheep farmers here just bag it and sell it to the Canadian Cooperative Woolgrowers who grade it bale it and sell it. You'll do better selling it yourself.

    Nobody ever takes my advice to contact me directly!!!!

    That being the case, the best place I have found is the Spinners & Weavers Housecleaning pages at:

    You can also check Yahoo Groups for both Spinning and also FleeceforSale. I have sold some of my overflow stash on these sites with great results!
