Quantity Available:     1 only

This is a hand dyed wool roving for spinning and felting. 

This roving is shades of purple, red and pink.

New Zealand breed is a medium wool farmed mainly in the South Island of New Zealand. It is a soft but sturdy wool, better suited to heavier yarns. It is especially good for felting. This top has a diameter of 30-32 microns and staple length of 3.5 to 4.5 inches.

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.

We name our rovings based on the inspirations we get from the colors, drawing on nature, literature, mythology, geography, and our lives and travels.If you are curious about a particular name, you can always ask us for an explanation. We may sometimes repeat names, but that doesn’t mean that the rovings with the same names are directly related, only that they struck us the same way.
