Dolphins have a repertory of sounds that range from clicks, cracks, squeaks, tweets, whistles, groans, and croaks. Much of the time, they sound like the squeak of rubbing fingers over inflated balloons. Would that we could know their conversations and thoughts, these mammals of the deep, roaming in worlds we can only brush against in our bumbling ineptitude. I hope that they think well of us and their songs are blessings and good wishes. This roving is royal blue and alpine blue with touches of purple.

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.
