Curious if there is anyone on the site who spins their own yarn, knits for themselves or raises fiber animals. I raise French Angora rabbits for fiber and also for meat. I'm a member of several forums elsewhere on these subjects but typically enjoy a bit more one on one conversation than those forums generate.

I am at the consumer end of the fiber arts myself. I knit, crochet, LuCet weave, and felt. 

I use a broad variety of fibers, and like to have at least 3 projects in the works at any given time. Right now I have a wool potholder, a dog sweater, and a blanket that I am working on.

Do you market your spun fibers for retail sales online?

No, I don't though I have friends who do.

I have in the past spun sheep wool, camel and alpaca.  Then knitted from my spinnings.  Haven't done any for quite some time now. Pic is the camel and alpaca effort.
