I have spinnign supplies here: Midnightsky Fibers- mostly roving and batts.

There is also some information in the articles section about different spinning, dye, etc styles

I also really like helloyarn.com (and her blog- helloyarn.com/wp)- she has drop spindle kits.

Hi all! I'm a forum newbie So, I have this really great job that allows me some interesting perks... like the recent acquisition of 4 or 5# of raw alpaca fiber. Someday I would love to learn how to process and spin but until I live in an apartment bigger than 400 sq ft, I would like to send it somewhere for processing. Any suggestions? Thanks!

i would google for info in your area (or within a reasonable to you shipping distance) for a wool mill/yarn mill/spinning mill, then contact them. for a fee they will usually offer multiple options, from just processing your fleece to spinning yarn from your fleece. HTH

I figure I should add here the sites I feel could be helpful. I am going to try not to post any repeats (sites that someone else posted) and I'm going to try not to post an overwhelming link flood, but most likely I will:

Instructional:
http://www.spindleandwheel.com
http://www.interweave.com/spin
http://www.abbysyarns.com
http://spinningspiderjenny.blogspot.com
http://askthebellwether.blogspot.com
http://www.ispindle.com (used to be icanspin.com but because of a domain name mixup they no longer occupy that address)
http://www.bellaonline.com/site/spinning (half original articles, half links)
http://www.textilelinks.com/author/index.html

Sheep breeds:

Well there hasn't been an update to this thread in a while! I *highly* recommend this book!! Spindles, wheels, wool prep, a glossary (wanna know what pre-drafting is?) great pictures....http://www.interweave.com/spin/books/Start_Spinning/

Hello

I'm really new here (like ... an hour ago? <G>) so maybe someone else has already posted this site.

I'm just learning how to spin and asked a spinner if she had an online site to help me and she sent me this one:

I recently heard of Sheep Shed Studio. They seem to have great deals on mill ends and grab bags of fiber.

http://www.thesheepshedstudio.com/index.html

Anybody ever ordered from them?...some people on ravelry really praised them.
