FARM ROVING - Baby Alpaca / Merino / Silk - Roving (Baby Grade Alpaca) from CHASE - Black

$ 13.00

This roving is made from CHASE, who is son of Champion SEBASTIAN and is a show winner as well.  He takes his personality from his dad and also stands in as a PR guy when needed, although getting a good pic of him is harder than his dad.    He has beautiful black fiber, and it is hard to get a good pic with the right lighting :) 

This is roving and is beautifully prepared and super soft.  It is pin drafted and a pleasure to spin.  

Normally I mix his fiber with white merino to make a steel grey with a white silk streak, but this time I took black merino and now this roving is jet black with a white silk streak!  It is striking ! 

The stats:

  • 2 or 4 oz in a braid
  • roving - pin drafted
  • 70% alpaca | 20% Merino | 10% cultivated
  • Grade 2 (baby grade)  micron approx 20-23 microns
  • next to skin OH SO soft 
  • almost no VM
  • no neps or noils (very smooth)
  • mill processed 
  • staple length - approx ~4 inches
  • Black / steel grey in color with white streaks from the silk

The roving is light and airy and drafts beautifully. It almost spins itself. It also felts incredibly well. It is pin drafted roving so it drafts more like top than regular roving.
