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!

Cheviot was wonderful

Super clean, soft feel, dyed it, heathery effect. Loved spinning it more than my usual favorites. Was easy on the fingers. Would definitely buy again. My dad loved the hat I made for him out of it- dyed it brown, gold, green, took dye nicely.

Ashland

It dyed beautifully. I have never dyed roving and was concerned about felting it by accident. Wow did it turn out well.

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.
