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

This roving is shades of purple and blue.

This Merino is sourced specifically from the Falkland Islands, unlike the other Merino we carry. Most wool labeled Falkland can be a mix of breeds, with Polwarth and Corriedale predominating. This is single breed Falkland, combining the benefits of the softness and fineness of Merino wool with the unique terroir of the Falkland Islands. This wool has a staple length of about 3.5" and about 28 micron diameter.
 
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.

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.
