Handspun Yarn

Yarn can be spun from, literally, hundreds of types of fibers.  Common sources here are wool from sheep, goats, alpaca, etc. Some artists raise their own fiber flocks, and hand process their wool to make limited edition yarn, rovings, and felted pieces.  Many fibers are blended, such as wool with acrylic or nylon, silk, cotton, bamboo.
