I spun about 4 lbs of rather ugly fibre in my early days, as punishment for buying this stuff because it was cheap. I learned quite a lot from it though. It is really hard to spend big bucks on fibre when you are starting to spin.
It sounds like you would like something more "slippery". I could be misreading you, but I find that slippery is not good in the early days, you want something with a bit of grip. Slippery can just fly through your fingers in clumps.
