2013 Maryland Wool Pool

The Maryland Wool Pool will be held Wednesday, June 19, at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland. Wool should be delivered to the pool between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. There will be three lines to accept wool.

The pool will not accept wet wool, black or gray wool, or wool from hair sheep or hair x wool crosses.  Wool delivered in polypropylene bags will be refused and wool delivered in burlap bags will be discounted 3 cents per lb. 

Anyone bringing wool to the pool in a nylon square pack weighing 250 lbs. or more will receive a 5 cent per lb. bonus payment for their wool. Smaller lots of wool can be delivered in plastic trash bags (clear preferred) or loose in the vehicle.

Payment will be made within several weeks of the pool.  Wool pool expenses (usually between 5 and 8 cents per pound) will be deducted from checks. Maryland Sheep Breeders Association membership dues will be deducted  on wool sales over $40.

Questions pertaining to the wool pool should be directed to the wool pool manager Rich Barczewski at (302) 857-6410 or
