Stone Wool's Farm Roving is exceptionally light, airy and smooth. Wound by hand into center-pull 4 oz "cakes," handspinning this wool into yarn is an absolute joy.
This roving was processed at Battenkill spinning mill in upstate New York from small farm Romney wool raised in the Hudson River Valley and fine-wool Merino raised in the American west. Our mill's semi-worsted processing method borrows the best of both worlds; fiber is aligned and smooth, yet spongy and light.
Long staple length Romney adds sheen and ease in handspinning; lush Merino adds softness and squish to finished yarn. For those who find fine-wool wool a frustrating handspinning experience, the inclusion of Romney wool in this roving makes for breezy spinning.
The Romney / Merino blend is available in three natural wool shades.
Quartz 01: Creamy white wool Quartz 02: A warm grey-brown shade Quartz 03: Onyx with metallic flecks of white fiber
