This roving is reserved for Robin. If you are not Robin, please do not buy it.

The soft color of the brick walls surrounding and protecting the vegetable and cutting garden sets off the plants inside as much as shields them from harsh winds. The flowers, leaves and espaliered fruit trees are lovely against the warm and faded bricks. This roving is burgundy, teal, rusty brown, golden yellow and deep green.

BFL is a “multipurpose” sheep breed dating back from the early 1900’s which produce “litters” of three or four lambs with long loins. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Fortunately, they also have a beautiful soft, long wool that is especially easy to spin, so they are raised to maturity for their lustrous fleeces.

My rovings 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 rovings from which I spin my yarns, so I dye them for that. If you find one missing that hasn’t sold, likely, I’m spinning it. Except for specialty fibers, rovings are priced at $3 an ounce.
