Poseidon - 4oz of American silksheep white wool roving in deep grey greens with blue, gold, and flashes of white. Immersion dyed in November 2010.

This roving is quite substantial and bouncy. I have loosely finger crocheted it into a chain to keep it neat. Hand wash only, this fiber will felt.

What do you get when a spinner starts breeding sheep to satisfy her own spinning preferences? American silksheep; long, lustrous, very soft fiber with lots of crimp. I'm happy to say it also takes dye beautifully. This breed and its unique fiber is locally bred in New Jersey. I purchased the prepared fiber directly from the shepherd at the Garden State Sheep Breeder's festival in September and I am very excited to make it available here.

I've finger spun a little from a scoured lock and find this breed very easy to spin even for someone at my novice level. A spinner friend tells me it reminds her a bit of spinning BFL.
