Teeswater Wool Roving - Deep Tears - 6.4 ounces
This roving is shades of red, pink, purple and violet.
This is a hand painted roving, or more properly, combed top, for spinning and felting.
The Teeswater sheep produces a long, curly and lustrous fleece. The name derives from the Tees River in Northern England. It’s one of those rasta sheep breeds with long curly locks and sheepdog faces. The wool is very shiny and reflective, with a little bit of a halo from the hair, but soft, nonetheless. Not a next to the skin wool for the sensitive, but definitely a good wool for something that needs drape. If you like spinning our Wensleydale, you will like this, too. Approximately 40-60 microns, and 6+" staple length.
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.
