Alpaca and Merino Fiber Roving WildThing’s Medium Brown for Spinning, Felting or Weaving, Washed and Carded

WildThing’s roving is very soft and a joy to spin into a lovely yarn or can be blended with other fibers to make something truly unique. It’s ready for felting and weaving as well. The fiber was skirted by me to remove veggie matter and second cuts, then washed and the fibers prepared into roving by a fiber mill. I asked the mill to blend in 10% merino wool to give the fiber strength and memory and does not affect the softness of the fiber. A sample picture of WildThing’s handspun fiber is included at the end of my photos.

For those unfamiliar with alpaca, it is not itchy as some wools are because the individual fibers do not have scales and is smooth next to the skin. It also has a hollow core which insulates 5 times better than wool which has a solid core. Alpaca does not contain lanolin that coats a sheep’s fleece. You can wear a light layer of alpaca and still be as warm as wearing wool. It is also moisture wicking. I love the feel of it going through my fingers as I spin and knit with it.

Alpacas are pasture animals so you may find a tiny bit of hay as you work with the roving. Some monitors portray color differently. I photograph in natural light to get the best image possible. My studio is smoke-free and dog friendly.

To clean this fiber and any garments made with it, hand wash in warm water, lay flat to dry. May be professionally dry cleaned. Treat as you would any fine wool garment.

Please message me with any questions prior to purchase, I’m happy to help!
