Handspun yarn can be made from many different types of raw fiber. Animal (protein) fibers are those such as wool shorn from sheep, goats or camelids (such as alpaca and llama). Plant fiber (cellulose) examples are cotton, or bast fibers (from the stem of a plant) such as flax (linen) or ramie. Man-made fibers that handspinners use include rayon and lyocell (Tencel).
Please submit informational and instructional sites about spinning fibers, types of fibers and their qualities and uses.
Please do not submit sites that primarily offer spinning fiber for sale. If the site sells fiber for spinning, please submit it to
