Semi-felted, soft, Merino roving or top for spinning or felting, 4oz.
**Yarn shown is for example only & not for sale.
This roving contains deep tones of tree barks, moss & lichen. The roving is slightly pre-felted & will need to be 'opened up' side ways and then pre-drafted for easy spinning.
Pictured with the roving is a 2 ply dk/worsted weight yarn that I spun from it.
This roving has been designed by me. Colors are not repeatable, so please purchase what you need while I have them in stock.
Content: 100% supersoft Merino wool.
Hand wash gently in cold water. Do not agitate (or it will felt). Lay flat to dry.
Suggestions for quantities:
4 oz = a long scarf OR a par of socks OR a hat & fingerless mitts.
8 oz = hat, scarf & fingerless mitts.
1 lb = small, sleeveless vest.
2 lbs = a full sleeved sweater.
Plying & its effects on the final knitted garment:
-Single ply will be 'stripey' and may lead to 'pooling' in the final garment.
-Double plies (as pictured in yarn) are best for a well distributed 'tweed' effect and will greatly reduce or even eliminate 'pooling' especially when the fiber is pre-drafted before spinning.
-3 plies will almost always eliminate 'striping' and 'pooling' & are best for a “heathered tweed” or non pooling effect. 3 plying will also create a very sturdy yarn for long wearing garments.
Colors may vary slightly depending on your monitor.
