The fibers below are great for felting or spinning...unless I note that the fibers are too short for good spinning!

For other felting supplies, such as partial felts/prefelts, felting fabrics, needles, tools or accessories, check under Felting. All spinning wheels, drop spindles, carding equipment, etc can be found under Spinning.

Just to help organize this page, I've put dyed fibers at the top, then I've tried to group silks with silk blends together in the middle before getting to various breeds of natural colors of wool and then embelllishments at the bottom
