Question

What's the difference between "top", "roving", "sliver", etc... all those different terms that to refer to the unspun fiber? I've been wondering for ages.

I wrote a piece on this over at Crochetville a couple of years [uh wow] ago. It basically has to do with how the fiber is prepared and the alignment of the fibers.

Abby does a good job of explaining it all here: http://www.abbysyarns.com/wordpress/?p=27
