What's the difference between wool roving and wool top???
I'm going to buy some wool to spin with soon but I have a few questions.
What's the difference between wool roving and wool top?
Can you spin with wool top or do you have to do something to it before you spin it?
I hope someone has an answer!

Welcome. I know it can be hard to find to figure out a lot of the fiber prep terms. I also found this glossary useful
