Item details

Our natural roving is a luxury to spin! Every fleece of wool, mohair and alpaca comes from local farms, from shepherds who believe in raising their animals the same way we do – with love, kindness and excellent care. We use both a local mill and another just a few hours north of us to produce soft beautiful roving for you to spin.

This rare wool came to us from an Amish friend right here in Ashland county. All of his ewes are just yearlings, and it shows in the beautiful quality of the fiber. They are being raised for their superb milk which is used to make specialty cheeses. Lucky for us they produce a beautiful medium fleece too!

This roving does contain minor vegetable matter, but not an excessive amount. Before sending it to Zeilinger Wool Co. for processing, we heavily skirted each fleece and picked out all of the many second cuts by hand to produce the best possible roving from this fiber.

Please note – This listing is for 4 ounces of roving but we are willing to sell in larger or smaller quantities. Just contact us, and we’ll create a special listing for you in the quantity you desire.

    Have never tried East Fresian wool before and can't wait to try it out. This is part of my on-going fiber animal breed study. Thanks!

    I purchased this just to become familiar with a new type of wool. It looks/feels like it will be very good for felting and dyeing and I look forward to trying it out.

Please be patient with us if it's a few days before we can ship your order. We are not Amazon and don't have an entire shipping department waiting to send everything out the same day. We have other obligations like full-time jobs and a farm to maintain, but we will do our best to ship your order as quickly as we possibly can. You are a priority to us, and we will do our best to meet or exceed your expectations.

Continental US addresses:

Small fiber and equipment orders can usually ship within 1-3 days unless they are special-order or custom items. Larger items like spinning wheels and looms will typically take a bit longer. If you choose Greyhound shipping to save money on your large item, we are only able to ship with them on Fridays. UPS orders are typically shipped on Mondays, and USPS Priority Mail can usually be sent Monday thru Friday each week. We will work with you to provide the shipping method that best meets your needs.

• Small orders under $20 will be shipped by USPS regular mail.
• Small items valued over $20 will ship by USPS Priority Mail with insurance and tracking.
• Larger standard items over $20 will be shipped fully insured by FedEx or UPS (our choice).
• Really, really big items, like some spinning wheels and looms, are much less expensive to ship using Greyhound Package Express, provided you have a terminal where you’re willing to pick up the item. If you’re interested in this option, please let us know when you place your order.

Your package will be delivered as listed above without signature required unless you specifically request different shipping particulars.

International addresses:

We offer international customers two options for shipping:

1. Customers can choose to have orders shipped with insurance at their expense. However, if any damage or loss occurs during transit, the customer will be responsible for filing the damage claim and getting reimbursement directly from the postal service. We will provide any documents necessary from our end, but we will not be responsible for filing or following up on the claim.

2. We will ship without insurance if the customer prefers, but the customer will not be able to get reimbursed for any damage or loss that occurs.


Continental US buyers only! Payment must be received within 3 business days. Other methods of payment will delay shipment by 15 business days.

Returns & exchanges

We’re sure you’ll be happy with your order, but just in case you’re not, we will refund your purchase price upon return to us of any new item in its original condition - properly packed, shipped and insured in its original packaging. We do not refund shipping/insurance costs unless you have somehow received a defective item.

Used items are sold as-is. We do our best to provide a thorough description of each item including a listing of any faults of which we are aware. Used wheels, looms and other equipment are all tested by us prior to listing, but we can’t guarantee used equipment as if it were new.

If your order has been damaged during shipping in the US, we will need your cooperation to file the insurance claim and provide reimbursement or replacement to you. You must cooperate with the carrier to make arrangements for them to inspect the package and item ordered. You must keep all of the original packaging until the carrier completes their inspection and approval of the claim. We are unable to provide reimbursement or replacement without your full cooperation during the claims process. Please see exception for international shipments in our Shipping Policy.
