weird fly tying material?

Hello, Im not tying my own flies yet but Im planning to do so in the near future. Is there any alternatives to the expensive feathers and rabbit fur, etc.? Im thinking of cheaper stuff I can find around the house, even if they dont last as long. Im interested in only tying simple nymphs (like a hares ear). Dont laugh, but I was thinking maybe regular lamb wool, color threads, bits and pieces of old carpets, etc. Is that an option? thanks.
