Purple Haze fantasy roving is a luxury roving 40% baby alpaca, 30% kid mohair first clip (Hand dyed), 25% CVM lambswool, 5% trilobal nylon for subtle sparkle. Due to the presence of kid mohair, it develops a halo effect, stunning. It's silky in character and baby soft, suitable for next to skin use. This listing is 4 ounces.
The fiber drafts like butter and spins readily fine or thin. Staple length is 4-5". It has beautiful drape. The lamb fleece is 19 micron with pronounced crimp, giving memory and elasticity. I anticipate it will felt but not as quickly or with as tight a surface as merino.
Roving are shipped in a box rather than a poly mailer to prevent compression. It should arrive lofty and ready to spin. I have been advised of an area of VM by one of my repeat customers. I believe it may have been trapped in the mohair locks. While I cannot find any areas that are concerning, if you receive fiber that is unacceptable to you, please contact me and we can arrive at a solution you are happy with.
