4 ounces of hand painted merino wool roving, for spinning or felting. Made in a smoke-free environment, using color-fast acid dyes.

This roving is inspired by the many archaeological excavations I've been on. The brown, yellow, and gold are the sand/dirt, while the red and orange are the shiny things one finds whilst digging.

I hand paint my rovings with care, using sponge brushes to apply the different colors of dye. Then I wrap the dyed roving and put it in hot water to set the dye. I make most of my own colors from mixes of existing colors, and they are a bit different each time I make them.

Please note that although I try to accurately photograph all of my merchandise, colors vary from monitor to monitor, and therefore the yarn or wool you get may look slightly different than it did on your computer screen.
