50% superwash merino wool and 50% bamboo super fluffy pencil roving! This roving is unbelievably soft and very smooth, and since it is pencil roving, there is no need to draft - simply enjoy your spinning and watching the colors meld. The pencil roving comes in a generous 4 ounce lots.

4 ounces!


Professional acid dyes and optimized reaction conditions - ultrafast colors that don't bleed. The dyes react via a hydration reaction mechanism with the amide bond in the wool. As a PhD chemist, I optimized the reaction conditions to drive the reaction to completion, which means that there is very little, if any, free dye left to bleed.

One skein should be enough for most pairs of socks. If you need more than 4 ounces, contact me and I can dye up any amount you desire. I keep a template skein on hand and all dyes are custom mixed using reproducible formulas, so the consistency between dyelots is quite high.
