Dyeing and spinning questions
I knitting for about a year now, I guess I say I'm intermediate. I've been interested in spinning for a while now, it seems really cool! I'm taking a class in beginning spinning but I'm also been looking up a lot of things about dyeing because it sounds really fun too! If I end up liking spinning (which I think I'll love)

I was wondering should you dye the roving material or the yarn after its been spun? I know they create different looks but won't dyeing before spinning strip the wool of its natural oils?

Also any recommendations on a beginner wheel? I'm going to test a few out at the class but I'd love to get some more advice or opinions.

Thanks for the help!!!
