recommendation

Typically the spinning books and instructors tell you to start with a long fiber wool, although i skipped all that and just went for the good stuff, romney and merino. (then cashmere). also they say that you should start with wool that it hand-combed, which i will say is a little easier to spin, but it's a little too slow of a process for me. i might have some romney that is already combed in my possession somewhere. i'll try and mail some to you.

if the fiber is too slick, you could also try dusting it with some baby powder. that's suppose to help, however i haven't it tried it myself.

hope that helps.

also i think i'm leaning a little to towards the treasure of knitting stitches. it seems a little more on the classy side.
