$22.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

This roving is in shades of purple, pink, violet and blue.

This is a hand painted roving for spinning.

This is a custom blend made for us by World of Wool. The alpaca is superfine baby royal alpaca, 18-19 microns. Only the finest alpaca fiber can be called royal -- about 1% of global alpaca fiber production earns this designation. The silk is grade A mulberry silk, considered the best quality silk there is. This is a true rare luxury fiber, very soft and warm.

Our braids 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 braids from which I spin my yarns, so I dye them for that.

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.
