Natural knitting yarns ?

I am feeling inspired to knit myself a jumper/jacket/cardigan for the winter [this one hopefully !] and would like to use a chunky, rustic, natural dyed type wool.

Can only find commercially made yarns that dont inspire me. Does anyone have any recommendations for websites or similar where I can get some ideas and maybe buy some wool ? I am not about to dye it myself or anything, the actual knitting is enuf !

Thanks
Sarah :flower:

Have a look on fleabay - they usually have handspun/dyed yarn.
