Ok, no I'm not really starving. But I am a student and on a tight budget. I got a top whorl spindle for Christmas and a little bit of roving. But it wasn't enough!!! I'm addicted now; I can see why my roommate's mom says it's fiber crack. I live in the Everett/Lynnwood area and need to find somewhere where I can get roving for a good price. If it has to be in Seattle that's fine, but if there's something up in Snohomish county that'd be amazing. Help prease!

Last time I went into Main Street their roving selection was very limited and not even close to my price range. I want to say it was something like 25-30 bucks for a couple of ounces I think. All be it, the roving was merino and silk (or maybe it was bamboo?), so the price tag was understandable. They're great for yarn, but their selection hasn't expended enough with roving.

I get my best fiber from etsy sellers of which there are a lot.  All the yarn stores around here mostly just carry over processed top from Ashland bay.  If you go to a spin in you can get hooked up with nice locally grown and dyed fiber sometimes.  The yarn stores I know of that have fiber are Knot Just Yarn in Burlington, and Main Street Yarn in Mill Creek.
