FARM ROVING - Baby Alpaca / Merino / Firestar - Roving from TEDDY - ROSEY GREY/Brown

$ 13.00

This roving is made from "TEDDY", one of our junior herdsires here at Alma Park. He is a Rosey Grey alpaca, a very unique color when all spun up!  It's really hard to describe.  He was the cutest alpaca as a cria and I used him in all my advertisements.  He is now all grown up!  Son to one our favorite herdsires of all time, he is a perfect combo of his mom, Wynona and Bode (dad). 

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

The stats:

  • 2 or 4 oz in a braid
  • roving - pin drafted
  • 70% alpaca | 20% Merino | 10% firestar sparkle (nylon)
  • Grade 2 (baby grade) micron approx 20-23 microns
  • next to skin OH SO soft 
  • almost no VM
  • no neps or noils 
  • mill processed 
  • staple length - approx 3 - 3.5 inches

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.

** READY TO SHIP**

Pic of Teddy at 6 weeks old, his fiber was so light, but his ears gave away his Rose Grey beauty.   Pic of Teddy with Mom, Wynona.  Unfortunately, I have no good, recent ones of him as he has become camera shy .... but I am going to keep trying!
