FARM ROVING - Alpaca / Merino / Silk - Roving from LIZZIE - Maroon/Brown/Dk Rose

$ 26.00

This roving is made from LIZZIE, who is quite the character around the farm.  She is a hard color to describe to the fiber artists out there.  To other alpaca breeders she is a Dk Rose Grey.  If she stands in the sun, she clearly has maroon undertones.  I added some maroon merino to the roving to accent this and OMG, it is such a cool, unique an awesome combo.  I cannot wait until next shearing to do it again! 

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.  

The stats:

  • 4 oz in a braid
  • roving - pin drafted
  • 70% alpaca | 20% Merino | 10% cultivated silk
  • Grade 3 (superfine grade)  micron approx 23-26 microns
  • next to skin OH SO soft 
  • almost no VM 
  • no neps or noils (very smooth)
  • mill processed 
  • staple length - approx 3- 3.5 inches
  • maroon/brown

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.
