Superwash BFL Wool / Nylon 80/20% Roving - Collywobbles - 5.0 ounces

$16.25 USD

This roving, or more properly combed top, is shades of yellow, olive, brown and maroon.

BFL is a “multipurpose” sheep breed dating back from the early 1900’s which produce “litters” of three or four lambs with long loins. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Fortunately, they also have a beautiful soft, long wool that is especially easy to spin, so they are raised to maturity for their lustrous fleeces. The dye colors are very vibrant on BFL, and it has a soft, luxurious feel. 

This is Superwash, so it holds up well to washing, but it is not suitable for felting. The addition of 20% nylon improves durability. This is should work well for socks.

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.
