IRREGULAR: This is not an actual dye lot photo. This fiber has shorter and more muted green bands, and the orange and hot pinks is more blended and in some cases, the bands are short. They are BEAUTIFUL, just not exactly as seen above! Fiber is first quality.
Hand dyed Falkland wool roving (combed top) for spinning and felting in Three Waters Farm colorway Racing through Puddles. Each braid weighs 4 ounces.
The first photo is two braids wound together; the next four photos are all of the same braid.
Falkland wool roving (combed top) 4 ounces. Approximately 26 microns, with a staple length between 4-6 inches, this wool feels much softer than its 26 microns would indicate. (It is similar to BFL this way.) The fiber is crimped but open, with lots of body and loft, which makes it easy to spin. Falkland will make a yarn with plenty of bounce and memory.
