Ashland bay merino rovings are a staple that I use for my wet felted and Nuno felted accessories and clothing. I like to dye my own wool, but many times I don't want to deal with the hassle and I can always count on a consistent lay down of the fiber as well.
I used the wool for a class project during summer camp. The children loved the color and enjoyed the softness and rich hue of blue.
I LOVE the fiber, but the color is totally different than the advertised photo. I understand there being a difference in the shade due to computer screens, but the flamingo color that I was assuming was in the peachy pink range, was bubblegum pink. So if you're going for a specific color, you may want to call or see it in person first.
This fiber is clean, very soft, and easy to spin. I love the variety of colors offered! Customer service is excellent.
It felts quickly and spins smoothly. The colors are brilliant and don't fade with the use of hot water when felting.
