This is where I got my roving. It's not necessarily wool, there are many different fibers, but I started with wool and a drop spindle.

Roving is basically fiber ready to spin

For wool yarn the chain pretty much goes like this....

Sheep---->you shear the sheep and get fleece----->wash and card fleece---->you get roving-----> spin and maybe dye roving----> and you get yarn!

I think I said that all right... it's midnight and I've been awake for far too long!

Roving is a kind of fiber preparation, has nothing to do with the fiber itself. It's one of the preps where the fiber is ready to spin.

There is also batts, clouds & slivers and of course, you can always spin from the lock (clean or in the grease)
