Punta Arenas Wool Roving - Sprouting Leaves 1 - 4.1 ounces


Quantity Available:     1 only

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

This roving is in shades of green, yellow, orange, purple and gray.

Punta Arenas is a region at the southern tip of Chile known for sheep ranching. The breeds most commonly found there are Corriedale and Merino. This wool is a blend of wools sourced from the area. It has a medium-soft hand, somewhat like Polwarth. The fiber diameter is 24-26 microns, and the staple length 3.5-4".

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.
