This bay black roving is made from MARIGOLD, a young (yearling) ewe at a friends farm. I was at shearing and personally chose and skirted this fleece. This is beautifully prepared. Marigold was coated and this is her first shearing. It has a great hand and I feel that coopworth hoggett is next to skin soft for all but the most sensitive. She is bay black (black with brown undertones) and has some white fibers running through it.
