David Copperfield is the eponymous hero of Dickens' great novel, the most autobiographical of his works. Young David overcomes the loss of his parents, mistreatment by his stepfather and other misfortunes to find happiness with his second wife. The colors of this roving made me think of David as he turns his fortunes and his taken up by his kindly aunt, who sets him on a productive path to the future. This roving is blue, turquoise, yellow and brown.

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.
