Acadia was the name for the lands centered around Nova Scotia under French rule during the colonial period. Acadia was the scene of many wars between French and British settlers during the French and Indian wars, with the British ultimately conquering the territory in 1710. The British remained dubious about the loyalty of the French residents, and eventually they were expelled. Some of the French refugees settled in Louisiana, becoming the Cajuns. This roving is green, teal, blue and yellow.

Shetland are small, hardy sheep likely descended from Scottish Dunface. Their wool is extremely variable, able to make sturdy yarns for sweater or select wool (from the neck) is spun into the cobweb and lace yarns for knitted shawls that can be drawn through a wedding band! This is well-crimped UK Shetland wool, that is soft and bouncy when spun.

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.
