If you’re looking for some lovely Wensleydale/Romney roving, may I suggest Molly’s soft wool? It’s surprisingly soft for the breed cross, so while it will work beautifully spun up into rug yarn, it also makes a lovely sweater-though you’ll still want to wear something else next to the skin.
The un-dyed color is a dark grey/brown, and you can see the darkness in comparison to the other colors we have. It takes on both natural and acid dyes beautifully and has a long, curly staple.
It felts well, though due to its nature, it will take longer to wet-felt than a fine wool, but it doesn’t pill!
The wool is sold by the ounce at a minimum of 2 oz. If you’re looking to order a larger quantity, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a reduced rate.
Whether you’re a spinner, a felter, or a fiber artist, you’re going to want to get your hands on our roving.
