Blue Willow, also known as the Willow Pattern, was developed in England around the end of the 18th century. The patten depicts Chinese scenes. As a marketing aid, stories were invented to describe the pattern, although the stories actually had no Chinese roots. Production of Blue Willow continues to this day. This roving is shades of blue with cream.

Merino is the standard by which the fineness of wool is graded and is among the softest fleeces in the world. It’s an old breed, originally brought to the Iberian peninsula in the 12th or 13th century. Being small bodied, it is grown mostly for its exquisite wool. The staple is crimpy and shorter than some other popular breeds, but makes up for that in its legendary softness.

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.
