Santa Fe, New Mexico seems to have the perfect climate for lavender. Lavender is part of the mint family and has been used since ancient times for perfume and medicine. This roving reminds me of lavender with blue and rich soil for it to grow in. The colors of the roving include lavender, pink, green, aqua and splashes of orange.

Here is a listing for a 4 ounce hand painted Falkland wool top roving. All of my rovings are hand painted by me and I use these rovings to spin my yarn. I dye all of my fiber using Eco-Friendly dyes and I set the color with steam and Citric Acid. I carefully mix all of my colors to create the color ways you see.

Fiber: 100% Falkland Wool
Weight: 4 Ounces
Staple length: Approximately 5 inches

Falkland wool has an incredible soft hand and is extremely white. Falkland spins up beautifully and dyes very nicely. Falkland is not a breed of sheep but is named after the islands in comes from. This wool comes from the Falkland islands off of the coast of Argentina. Since there are no know sheep diseases on the island the sheep are never chemically dipped and the wool meets organic standards. It is a combination of breeds such as Polwarth, Corriedale, Merino, Romney and a few other breeds.

All of the rovings from Little Libellule are created in a SMOKE-FREE, but pet friendly home.
