There he stood, scepter in hand, in bejeweled glory and royal garments. The eminently expensive dyes of deep purple and red, imported just for the royal family, were used to dye the beautifully spun and woven robe and cloak. He was glorious in his splendor, youth and gallantry, greeting his subjects for the first time. This roving is deep burgundy, maroon, purple and lavender.

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.
