Item details

wool natural BFL x BFL mix sheep

A lovely, naturally white spinning fiber! A fluffy cloud to spin from! This unique fleece came from a BFL cross bred sheep (3/4 BFL x 1/4 mixed breed) It has a soft sturdy hand with no crimp and would make gorgeous cabled gansey sweaters, mittens and hats! It is not Merino fine so will stand up to wear and tear.
It has a bit of spinning oil in it so will wash out to a bright white.
The raw fleece was cleaned and processed at a custom mill into pin drafted roving so there has been minimal processing and NO harsh chemicals or fiber strippers used (that's why there is a little veg in it). This means the very best qualities of this fiber have been preserved! It also means this fiber has a very small environmental foot print!

This fiber is pretty clean with only the odd small bits of veg matter. It seems to fall out when spinning. I have spun up some of this myself and I don't have to pre-draft it at all. That's the beauty of pin drafted roving! The staple is medium length and the fiber is soft enough for next-to-skin wear.

This fiber is naturally white BFL x BFL cross wool, raised in a humane environment on a small Sasktachewan ranch. A very "close to nature" product!
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being potscrubbers and 10 being a baby's bottom this fibers is a 8 with a soft, smooth hand.
This fiber will felt and can also be dyed. Hand wash in lukewarm. Lay flat to dry.

This listing is for a (very long) strip of pin drafted roving with a total weight of about 4 ounces.
