$14.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

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

This roving is shades of green, purple and silver.

New Zealand breed is a medium wool farmed mainly in the South Island of New Zealand. It is a sturdy wool, especially good for felting. This top has a diameter of 30-32 microns and staple length of 3.5 to 4.5 inches.

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. Each colorway is unique; we may sometimes repeat names, when a new colorway strikes us the same way as an older one.

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.
