$18.45 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

This roving is shades of purple, pink and red.

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

This wool is a blend of 50% Merino, the softest of wools, with 25% tussah silk and 25% viscose bamboo. The resulting braid has remarkable softness and sheen, and a bit of variegation from the bamboo.

Our braids 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.

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. Each colorway is unique; we may sometimes repeat names, when a new colorway strikes us the same way as an older one.
