I loved this wool! I am always trying out different types and this has been one of my favorites. It felts easily (be careful while dying on stove top) which is a big bonus for me. It has a nice little ***** curl to it. Very soft!
I found this to be wonderful to felt fleeces into lovely rugs. White photo is the Chevron roving as I felted it on to a Icelandic fleece last summer sold at Christmas fair. The second is the finished rug.
Great and easy to spin
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!
I am a beginner so using this roving is a great way to learn to draft.
