A little sly, a little mischievous, always up for a prank, the Elven Queen can be as flamboyant at the rest of them or as inconspicuous as a dappled leaf in the glade. When she wants to observe but not be observed, she wears garb that miraculously blends into the woodland scenery. This roving is a mix of olive and chartreuse greens, with a little dark forest green as an accent.

BFL is a “multipurpose” sheep breed dating back from the early 1900’s which produce “litters” of three or four lambs with long loins. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Fortunately, they also have a beautiful soft, long wool that is especially easy to spin, so they are raised to maturity for their lustrous fleeces.

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.
