80% Merino & 20% Silk Combed Top Pencil Roving. Pencil Roving is exactly what the name implies: a type of unspun roving that has been drawn until it is the size of a fat pencil.
SPINNING: Merino Pencil Roving is an excellent fiber for the novice spinner since there is hardly any need to draft your fiber and it will quickly spin into singles...very satisfying! It is a customer favorite for drop spindles as well. Micron count of 21.5; staple length of 2.75 inch (70mm).
KNITTING & CROCHET: Pencil Roving is much appreciated for very bulky, chunky knit projects... Use big US size Knitting Needles # 19 or big Crochet Hook S.
FELTING: Combed Merino Top is a famously soft fiber and felts beautifully. It is ideal for needle felting, wet felting, nuno felting and felted soaps.
WEAVING: Merino Pencil Roving is much appreciated for the bold texture you can achieve with this fiber.
We recommend hand wash in cool water with like colors.
