This roving is shades of gold, brown, green and gray.

This is a hand dyed wool roving for spinning and felting.

Targhee wool is spongy and somewhat elastic. The Targhee is a breed developed in the 1920’s by the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station in Dubois Idaho. It’s a mix of Rambouillet, Lincoln, and Corriedale; later Columbia was added. It’s strong and blooms nicely. It is 23 microns diameter.

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.
