This is a hand painted roving, or more properly combed top, for hand spinning and felting.

This roving is shades of green.

This is a custom blend we had created for us by World of Wool, of half Finn wool and half Gotland wool. We wanted to see how these two Nordic breeds would combine. The result is a medium soft but sturdy braid that takes color well. The fiber diameter is about 30 microns, and the staple length 3-4 inches.

We name our braids based on the inspirations we get from the colors, drawing on nature, literature, mythology, geography, and our lives and travels. Braids with the same name numbered sequentially are a matched set that were dyed together, although they may have different weights and look slightly different in the photos.

My rovings are dyed with fairly even distribution of colors. Photos are of each side of the coil, so you can see as much of the color as possible. These are the same rovings from which I spin my yarns, so I dye them for that.
