This roving is a fluffy type of wool which is wonderfully soft and is a dream to spin. All our yarns are hand-dyed... this one is a bright, vibrant pink. These fibers come from my flock of registered Cheviots. The weight of each package is approximately 1/4 oz. All of our wool is grown on our PA Century Farm which has been in my family for over 100 years. The farm is also on the National Register of Historic Places. We are committed to raising the more unusual livestock, rather than following the crowd and raising the big commercial sheep with yucky wool and tasteless meat. We hope you will support us in our mission. For more information about rare and heritage breeds, please visit the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy at www.albc-usa.org and thanks for looking at our little 'shop'.
I got it late the folks went on vacation and did not post it any place. My purpose in buying from there was because they have in their policies that the item ships in two business days. So after contacting them and not hearing back for a while they wrote and said oh we were on vacation. They did offer to send it priority to get it here in a hurry but that seemed to take several days to even be accepted at the Post Office. The item itself was not bad the colors are not as vibrant as expected but that could be just different computer screens. Was just generally disappointed with the purchase and that while it was explained why my package did not go out I did not get the simplest of apologies and that it took a substantial time after they did contact me for the PO to get my package from them.

I love this wool for needle felting. It's very coarse with a lot of "body" ...so it felts up fast! It mixes well with other wools, and fibers like ultra smooth bamboo roving. The colors are delicious, and I love this unusual yarn in my fiber stash.
The seller is very communicative ! Wonderful Etsy experience!
