I really enjoyed spinning this roving. My fiance bought this for me as a gift and I love It! It takes dye very well and it is a dream to spin. I will definitely buy it again!
I bought this wool for spinning, not for making a giant knit stitch blanket. The wool came in a very tightly wound skein. I was a little bit concerned that it might have felted so much that I wouldn't be able to spin it without a lot of preparation. However I needn't have worried. I unwound the skein and put it loosely in a large bag and it fluffed up nicely.. I have spun two spools of singles so far, and it's drafting well. I did pre-draft it before I spun it by tugging the roving along the length of it before I began, but I do that with all roving and top. Overall it is a good bargain for some lovely wool and I look forward to lots of happy hours spinning and knitting!!
This is a project I am going to try, I am just beginning to learn about knitting. Your instructions seem easy to follow, very clear, concise, and stated slow enough to follow. n excellent tutorial. Thanks!
The 7 pounds of merino wool I bought to make a arm knit blanket is great to work with. I would by this wool again!
I absolutely love the 7lb package of Merino Roving. While I am using it for another project, I am seriously considering another purchase to actually make a blanket.
