Wool Roving, 9 oz. Batts

16.50

There's a story behind this roving. Dear friends of ours live in the next town over from us, and they raise two sheep. Our friends do this solely for enjoyment. Neither of them spin, knit, dye, weave - nothing. Well, I had one of their fleeces from last year processed at our nearest mill, and this listing is for Dolly's fleece. I've had the pleasure of spinning a batt and can assure you it's a dream to spin. Our friends don't know what breed Dolly is, or anything else about her, really, except that she's sweet! What I know is that her fleece just might be my favorite that I've spun yet! That it's a mystery fleece only added to the fun of spinning it up. I spun a two-ply woolen yarn that I knit into two hats for our friends, envisioning them being worn to go out and feed Dolly in the winter time. ;)

The variation of silver and gray becomes more enhanced as it's spun. The photo of the bobbin shows that pretty well. I can't say enough how nicely this fleece spins up.
