"Heathered" rovings are made of soft BFL wool that have stripes of darker wool running lengthwise throughout the roving. When overdyed in the various colorways, it creates a roving with unique depth of color as both the dark and lighter colors combine. When spun, a beautiful heathered yarn with result. Felters may experience a depth of color that cannot be obtained any other way.

This new colorway was taken from a photo of petrified wood from the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. I am amazed at the myriad colors that can be found in such a fossil. Beautiful! There is almost every color that I imagine when I think of Arizona and the American Southwest.

BFL is short for Blue Faced Leicester but it is not short in wonderful qualities. It is an extremely soft and lustrous wool that makes the most beautiful yarn. If you have used BFL before, you know what I'm talking about. If not, you are in for a treat!
