Brecknock Hill Cheviot are sheep of the Welsh hills, first recognized as a distinct breed in the 1850s. They developed out of Scottish Cheviot stock brought to Wales. They are a small-bodied, hardy sheep noted for their gentle disposition. The wool is well suited to handspinning, with a fiber diameter of 31-33 microns and staple length of 3-4.75 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 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.
