Thought I would give some new fiber types a try; I typically work with very soft fibers like merino and alpaca as a tactical preference. The roving itself is very nice, but not my personal favorite as it's a medium weight rather than a fine one. It does felt easily, which would be great for thouse who want to felt. Overall, I would say take a chance and see if this is for you even though it wasn't for me since it was high-quality, very affordable, and takes dye great!
Feel of the wool is good. Haven't spun it yet.
Spins up soft and consistent!
Pleasant spinning and to use with rolags.
For the price it is a great deal. I think it will be soft enough to wear close to the skin. It is as soft as some other fiber I purchased at the same time, a solid merino top called "lightning". So you can't beat the price. It will definitely spin well and I am looking forward to dyeing it. Lots of fiber for a great price.
