This roving is made from a Romney cross wool fleece. It is a natural Dark Grey color and soft and warm. Since I am no longer able to raise my own sheep, I get all of my wool from local New Hampshire farmers. The $12.00 is a sale price and it will change after the Holidays. I have a limited amount of this wool available. As you can see in the photo, it can be used for needle felting. It also spins up very nicely. You will receive 8 ozs of this wonderful wool. For smaller or larger orders please message me and I will create a listing that will fit your needs.
