My dear husband and helpmate, Mike, makes fresh orange juice for me every morning that good citrus are in season. My very favorite juice is honey tangerine, made precious by their short winter availability. Second, as much for its glorious color as its flavor, is blood orange. I love cutting open the orange spheres to find the luscious red-burgundy inside or to hold up the glass and look through the translucent red juice. This roving is orange and red.

Shetland are small, hardy sheep likely descended from Scottish Dunface. Their wool is extremely variable, able to make sturdy yarns for sweater or select wool (from the neck) is spun into the cobweb and lace yarns for knitted shawls that can be drawn through a wedding band! This is well-crimped UK Shetland wool, that is soft and bouncy when spun.

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.
