Choosing the Perfect Fiber for Spinning

Are you new to spinning? Whether you are spinning on a spinning wheel or drop spindle, a beginning spinner needs a fiber that is easy to draft and spin. We recommend our Corriedale Cross Wool Top for the budget minded spinner and our Carded Corriedale Sliver or the hand dyed Potluck Roving if you are looking for more color.

If you have spun before and are looking for soft fibers that are perfect for scarves or if you are a felter looking for fast felting fibers, then try our Merino wool top. It is available in over 36 solid colors and also a in a multi color variation. No matter which one you choose, you will be rewarded with incredible softness.

Looking for a treat? Lux it up even more when you spin our buttery soft Merino-Silk blends from Ashland Bay. These fine fibers are ideal for spinning fingering or lace weight yarns that make beautiful shawls, scarves and more. Or how about a silky camel down? Ever so fluffy angora? You just need a little bit to blend with another fine wool to get a "halo".

Who can resist silk? You have not spun it yet? Start out easy with our bleached tussah silk top. It can be spun by itself or plied or blended with any other fine fiber such as merino or BFL. Or go all out with the superfine Cultivated Silk top. The silk worms that produce these fine fibers are fed only Mulberry leaves, resulting in a whiter and finer silk than the tussah silk.

Go Natural! Want to avoid unnecessary chemicals? Our natural wool tops are free of dyes and are ready to spin, just like all of our our spinning fibers. Take your pick of fine and fluffy Shetland wool top in four colors, rare Welsh Mountain top or Blueface Leicester (BFL).
