Raw Wool, Roving & Yarn
All our natural and dyed wool roving is from our, sheep. Other fibers included in blends are carefully selected for color and texture compatibility with our wool.
Spinning oil (a vegetable product) is added by the processor when roving is created to control the static electricity in the fiber as it flies through the machinery. If your roving should feel tacky or sticky, it is only a result of this added oil. It can easily be washed out by soaking in hot water and detergent either before spinning, or after the fiber is spun into yarn.
All dyeing is done here at the farm by hand. No two dye lots of roving will ever be quite the same.
