This wool is from my flock of Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep. You are invited to take a peek into their world at www.MyLittleSheep.com where there are many pictures.

This roving is the wool from my "black" sheep, and was processed at a mill. The natural color of this roving is a mixture of shades, with the fundamental color being a dark warm brown. Babydoll wool is around 2 inches long, has a lot of loft (a spongy, cushy feel) and is very elastic while retaining its shape (great for socks!). It clings well to itself or can be combined with other fibers like angora that do not have that quality. Most people can wear Babydoll wool garments next to their skin comfortably. This wool has a low ability to felt in comparison with other wool, although the high level of "barbs per inch" make it wonderful for needle felting!

Handwashing with cool water and laying out to dry is advised to best retain the original qualities...however, you may be pleased with other washing possibilities! If you'd like to learn more about this interesting fiber (including our machine washing and drying experiments) you are welcome to visit this page on my website: http://www.mylittlesheep.com/BabydollFiber.htm

The roving you will receive is the same in appearance, only the correct amount. (The roving in the pictures weighed less than an ounce.)
