Wool

Beginning spinners often ask for a good practice wool. The domestic wools listed here are perfect for your first efforts. They are well prepared and reasonably priced – two important considerations.

Too many beginners make the mistake of trying to learn on an inferior product, and blame themselves when their yarn turns out badly. When you’ve mastered the basics try your hand at Wensleydale, mohair, some of the luxury fibers or the Merinos listed under felt.
