I am so thrilled to be able to offer this beautiful 100% domestically sourced and prepared wool roving. I have carefully chosen this wool for it's consistently wonderful quality.
Meet Black. This is a rich, solid black, and a must have for any felter's palette!
This is a medium fine wool, very soft to the touch, but still with plenty of crimp for felting. I use it primarily for needle felting, but it is also wonderfully suited for wet felting and spinning.
For your reference, the ball of roving in the photo is 1 ounce.
More of this roving is available upon request, just message me for a custom listing!

Wondering about the difference between batts and roving? Here is a brief breakdown of these two types of wool with emphasis on their uses for needle felting:
Batts (or batting, or fleece) and roving have both been pulled through carding machines which comb and align the fibers to some degree. But with batting, the wool comes off the machine in thin sheets which are layered to form thicker fluffy sheets. The layering results in a textured wool where the fibers are no longer aligned, making it perfect for needle felting as it felts up very quickly. Roving, on the other hand, is processed one step further and pulled off the machine in ropes where the fibers are mostly aligned. Though the fibers are more aligned, this form of wool still retains the wool's natural crimp, making it another excellent choice for needle felting.
