This roving reminds me of hiking in the Allegheny National Forest. We spend a lot of time traveling through and hiking in the forest. This roving has all of the colors of the Forest floor with browns, rust, orange, green and a little navy.

Here is a listing for a 4 ounce handpainted Merino wool roving. All of my rovings are handpainted by me and I use these rovings to spin my yarn. I dye all of my fiber using Eco-Friendly dyes and I set the color with steam and Citric Acid. I carefully mix all of my colors to create the colorways you see.

Fiber: 100% Merino Wool
Weight: 4 Ounce
Staple length: Approximately 3 inches or better.

Merino wool derives from Spain. The Spanish crossed their ewes with rams from Africa in the twelfth and thirteenth century. This cross created an amazing fine-wool sheep that was not exported out of Spain until the 1700's. In the early 1800's Merinos were exported to North America. Today Merino wool is the best known wool on the market. It is known for its soft feel and can be worn next to the skin.

All of the rovings from Little Libellule are created in a SMOKE-FREE, but pet friendly home.
