Scottish Blackface wool roving is carded around a cotton core and procduces a soft sturdy yarn for weaving and knitting. I use our core spun yarn to weave rugs on my peg loom, can be used in other weaving projects and of course fun to knit with!
Each skien is approximately 10 oz and meausure about 50 yards. Yarn is about 1/2 inch thick.
There may be a slight difference in weight but the color will be true from skein to skein.
Scottish Blackface wool is traditionally used for rugs. It can be coarse due to guard hair. We breed for a softer fleece with little guard hair. Soft but sturdy wool.
