Wool Roving, 9 oz. Batts

13.20 16.50

There's a story behind this downy soft roving. Dear friends of ours live in the next town over, and they raise two sheep. Our friends do this solely for enjoyment. Neither of them spin, knit, dye or weave - none of it. They generously gifted me with one of Dolly's fleeces, which I had processed at our nearest mill. So, this listing is for sweet Dolly's fleece. I've had the pleasure of spinning a batt and can assure you it's a dream to spin. The finished yarn takes on a slight sheen and has a nice drape. 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 Dolly's breed is a mystery only adds to the fun of spinning it up. I spun a two-ply woolen yarn that I knit into two hats for Dolly's caretakers. ;)

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.
