You can spin anything. That being said, I'd probably go and find some top, or a batt made of Blue Faced Leicester (BFL), or Corridale. in a way, a batt will be easier to spin, since the fibres aren't so compacted.  What kind of wheel did your friend give you? Very lucky indeed to be given a wheel outright, that's for sure!

Do share what you make!
