Nice to spin with

I am a beginner so using this roving is a great way to learn to draft.

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!

Good for Dryer Balls

It's fairly coarse and felts easily. I use it for practical items like dryer balls.

Product Details

Cheviot Wool top in a beautiful natural white color.  Helical crimp - 3 dimensional structures that gives the wool resilience and bounce.  The micron count is between 27-33 and this fiber has a 4-5 inch staple length.  The wool top is open without being slippery making it an excellent wool for beginning spinners.  The yarn produced from Cheviot wool is a pleasure to knit, crochet and weave with. 1 lb. equals about 20 yards.

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.
