She would just fly off the handle for any infractions. Why was she so testy? Perhaps, it went along with her red hair, perhaps, because that no-count had spent the rent money again on drink and drugs, perhaps because she felt she was perpetuating in her own children, the mistakes of her own misspent youth. Little did she know that her eldest son would someday astound the world with his eloquent poems. For now, she was simply wrestling with her inexplicable rage. This roving is warm orange, with pale peaches and pinks, with small shots of muted brown throughout.

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.
