When the back field is clothed in the pink of clover flowers, we put off mowing for a time. Known, of course, as red clover, the big pink heads make me reminisce about the childhood joy of pulling out the individual flowers out of the blossom head and sucking out the sweetness. The bees seem to have the same idea and flock to the early summer bounty. This roving is grass green, bright pink, magenta, and mauve.

Wensleydale is a 30 to 35 micron wool, a long, luster fleece which has shine and halo when spun. People with sensitivity to wool may find this wool a bit too hairy, though it would make a nice shawl with a halo. These sheep are listed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust of the U.K. as an “at risk.” Do Google images of them, they are great looking animals in their “Rasta” hairdos.

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.
