Finn Wool Roving - Persimmons 1 - 4.0 ounces

$13.00 USD

This roving is shades of orange, red, brown and purple.

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

Finn, also known as Finnish Landrace, is a hardy breed of sheep native to Finland. They thrive in rugged climates, and produce lambs early and often. The fleece is semilustrous and very open, with a variable crimp and a silky handle. The staple length is about 3" and the diameter 28-30 microns.

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.

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.
