This roving is shades of red and yellow.

Hill Radnor sheep are a rare breed, mostly found in central Wales. They are hardy, medium-sized animals, and their fleece is notable for being much whiter than most mountain breeds. Their wool is medium-grade in softness, with a somewhat bouncy character, best suited for sturdy projects rather than soft, luxury items. The fiber diameter is about 32 microns, and the staple length 3-5.5".

Our 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.

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.
