Beautiful cvm-romeldale wool has been blended with gently harvested kid mohair and processed into pin-drafted roving. The color is winter white with occasional strands of gray/black fibers that give heathered effect and adds a warm earthy hue. This roving will spin into a lovely light cream white yarn with specks of silver.
Pin-drafting the wool and kid mohair creates a beautifully soft and smooth roving of aligned fibers that can now be spun into near perfect worsted yarns.
85% cvm-romeldale wool 15% kid mohair
**pin-drafted roving should be nearly VM free, this roving has come back from the mill with a bit more VM than expected...it is easily picked out during spinning or falls out when the hand spun yarn is washed but for this reason the price per ounce is reduced from $4.50/oz. to $3/oz.
***if you would like your roving carded again I will be happy to send it through my Super Card and you will have a nearly VM free roving - priced at $4.50/oz. Please contact me for this service and I will set up a reserve listing for you with adjusted price.
sold by the ounce at $3/oz this listing for for 4 oz. of pin drafted roving

Love this blend! Spinning on my turkish spindle and it drafts like a dream. Kid mohair is a great addition to the cvm. I'm looking forward to some delicious socks and gloves!
