What fiber do you like to spin the most? Personally I love alpaca, it's the perfect mix of luxury and not completely unnafordable. I have very sensitive skin, and alpaca doesn't bother me at all. I really love angora, but it's too expensive to use all the time, and I'm allergic to it. I couldn't afford to spin nothing but alpaca, but it's not like it's 40+ bucks an ounce like qiviut. Also it's not to hard to work with, at least if your using huacaya alpaca. So what do you like? If you could only choose one fiber, what would you pick?

I'd probably stick with a a wool... I don't know which one... maybe BFL, or Polwarth? We live where it's incredibly cold for the better part of the year, so something soft and warm is what I'd spin!

I don't really know. I haven't had much of a chance to try a lot of different fibers. Merino seems to be one of the more common ones I've run into.
