When the new grass is emerging in the earliest spring ---- sometimes while there are still patches of snow on the ground, the small winter crocus flowers are forcing their way through the turf. The yellow ones are bright and sunny, but the purple ones are the most glorious color. This colorway has the greens of the freshest, new grass and the delirious purple of just opening crocus.

Falkland is a strong, soft fiber from the Falkland Islands in the Southern Atlantic. It is a 24 to 28 micron fiber with approximately a 5-inch staple. This is a very white wool that dyes beautifully and spins very nicely, but is not a specific breed, but rather grown to a specification and blended. There are Corriedale, Polwarth, Dohne Merino and other breeds on the island. Since there are no sheep diseases on the islands, the animals are never dipped so there are not any organo-phosphate or pyrothroid sheep dip residues on the wool.

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.
