Perfect for Beginners

This roving was absolutely perfect for a beginner. I split it into three sections so I could practice handdyeing and the roving took the dye very well. I've spun two of these three sections so far and it truly is such a lovely, easy fiber to spin. Plus, it's a great amount of fiber for the price, I got a ton of yardage out of the 2-ply yarns I've created so far. I'll definitely be ordering more in the future!

Dyes and spins beautifully

This fiber takes dye really well and spins easily. I highly recommend this fiber for a new spinner, as the longer staples makes learning to draft much easier.

Great for Socks!

Took dye really well and spun up easily. It's much more grippy than merino, so I think it would be a good choice for beginners. It's also been super durable. I was able to spin thin enough for sock weight yarn, and so far they feel great on my feet and seem to be wearing like iron. I'm going to have these socks for many years!

HISTORY:

Cheviot sheep originated in the Cheviot Hills on the border of England and Scotland.  They were referred to as the Border Cheviot and are the foundation stock for the Brecknock and the North Country Cheviots.  This hardy breed can withstand harsh environments and are known for being great mothers.  Cheviot tweeds are a traditional woven fabric, famous for their crispness and durability, making it a popular suiting material for both men and women.
