The rickey is a classic cocktail, usually served in a highball glass, made originally with bourbon but now more commonly with gin, lime juice, club soda, and little or no sugar. The tart flavor from the absence of sugar is the distinguishing mark. The name lime rickey is sometimes applied to a non-alcoholic version which eliminates the gin and adds a touch of sugar to compensate. Either way, it is a refreshing drink. This roving is a very bright light green with yellow gold an peach notes.

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. It 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.
