Wool is one of the easiest, most versatile and popular fibers to spin.

There are many different breeds of sheep, and each offers a different type of fleece (wool). The main classifications are fine wool, medium / crossbred wool, and long wool.  Each comes in a variety of colors, lengths, crimp/curls, and textures.
