Gray Merino Wool Roving 23 Micron - Persian Gulf - 4.1 ounces

$13.35 USD

This roving is in shades of blue and purple.

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

Merino is the standard by which the fineness of wool is graded and is among the softest fleeces in the world. It’s an old breed, originally brought to the Iberian peninsula in the 12th or 13th century. Being small bodied, it is grown mostly for its exquisite wool. The staple is crimpy and shorter than some other popular breeds, but makes up for that in its legendary softness. 

This is a soft and lovely natural gray Merino that we have overdyed. This fiber has a 23 micron diameter and 3" staple length.

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.
