2 oz of hand-dyed, ultra-soft roving! The sheep used to create this roving graze on a beautiful ridge in south central Wisconsin. The shepherdess coats her flock, meaning there’s no VM in any of the roving. She has been breeding her flock with spinner’s in mind, making this some of the softest roving I have encountered. It is minimally processed to maintain all the natural bounce and crimp of the breeds at Ewetopia Mill in Viroqua, WI.
I then hand-dye the roving in small batches to ensure even, repeatable color distribution between braids. The roving is then double checked to make sure no felting occurred during the dye process, so you have an excellent spinning experience!
A note about this colorway: I have done my best to rinse, but the purple color is known to bleed more than other acid dye colors. If it's a concern, soak with vinegar or citric acid to prevent any bleeding.
*Update* I have secured more fleeces, some coming from a flock in New York, and the rest using the same shepherdess in WI! This will be milled in New York and hopefully be done around January.
