Yak / Merino 50/50% Wool Roving - Tallgrass Prairie 1 - 4.2 ounces

$21.00 USD

Quantity Available:     1 only

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

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

This luxurious roving is a 50/50 blend of yak and superfine Merino wool. Yak is often compared to cashmere and camel down for its exceptional warmth and softness. The yak used in this blend has a natural brown color, giving the roving a dark base. Here it is combined with 19 micron Merino, among the softest of all wools, for an especially enticing blend.

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.

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.
