Merino Wool Roving Rainbow 5-Pack - 10 ounces

$32.00 USD

Spin your own rainbow or combine the colors in imaginative ways. This pack has five 2 ounce braids, one in yellows and oranges, one in maroons, reds and/or pinks, one in blues and turquoises, one in purples and/or magentas, and the last in greens and/or olives.

These packs allow you to play with handling wide ranges of color. Get out of your color comfort zone! Try separating colors for interesting gradients, splitting different width strips, or fractal spinning. Test out color interactions with plying, such as complementary colors, tertiary colors, 2-ply or 3-ply. See how traditional artists’ color theory works or doesn’t work when spinning and plying. Or simply spin fabulous, unique skeins of yarn for that special project. These little two ounce braids provide lots of possibilities.

These make a great gift for a spinning pal.

Each braid will different and no two packs are alike. I will choose balanced color range to give you the most variety for experimentation. The photo shows one sample; the colors you receive be your own unique color combination.

This pack is made from a soft 21.5 micron Merino wool. The base wool is a variegated blend of white with tan and brown, which we have overdyed. Merino sets the standard for softness in the world of wool, and this is a fine example of that.
