Spinning Fibre Suppliers

Hand dyed spinning fibre

In our Spinning From Scratch course, I demonstrate all the techniques using one of my all-time favourite spinning fibres — SweetGeorgia BFL+Silk in our Tapestry colourway. But there are plenty of other options for starting out.

You can also find spinning fibres at these suppliers:

If you’re choosing your first spinning fibre, consider wool breeds like Corriedale, Bluefaced Leicester, and Coopworth which are a little grippier (and a little coarser), making it easier to work with for starters. As you begin to develop more muscle memory and confidence with your spinning and drafting, there is a world of incredible wools, silks, and luxury fibres that await!
