Spunky Eclectic has fabulous fiber (www.spunkyhats.com
) and she sells a lot of natural fibers by the ounce. As a new spinner I know that I appreciated being able to try different fibers to see what I thought of them. :D
Silk hankies are a great beginner spinning item too...you can usually find them on eBay or etsy pretty cheap.
Dyes are another item she might appreciate -- acid dyes can be used for dyeing either fiber or yarn.
