I have a friend who is a sheep farmer. He has 400 lbs of wool and has told me that if I want to learn to spin it he would give it to me. I have just started knitting this year and have become a fanatic. I love it and I am very interested in learning how to spin my own yarn. Do you guys just keep the color of whatever material you use or do you dye it? How does it all work? Do you purchase a spinning wheel? What do you experienced spinners do? How does it all work?
