Coopworth Wool Roving - 4 oz - grey

$ 12.25

This grey roving is from a male at a friends farm. I was at shearing and personally chose and skirted this fleece. This is beautifully prepared. "Vermont" was coated.  

It is a medium wool with approx 30 micron. I am not sensitive, but if you are, you may not want to use this for next to skin items like a scarf.  

It is smooshy and squishy and just really fun.  When I was braiding it, I felt there was the tiniest bit of lanolin left in the roving.  

The stats:

  • 3.5 or 4 oz in a braid
  • pin drafted  roving
  • 100% Coopworth wool from a boy name "Vermont"
  • almost no VM - tiny bit here and there (coated fleece), any VM should fall out when spinning
  • almost no neps or noils, but a few  - nice and pretty smooth
  • mill processed
  • staple length - 5 inches

The roving is light and airy and drafts beautifully. Coopworth is very versatile and is easy for a beginner to spin.
