4 ounces Natural Colored Silver Wensleydale Sheep Pencil Roving
Colored Wensleydales are born quite dark, even black, but usually lighten as they age. Since my flock is a mix of ages, we have many different shades of natural colored wool from them. They are sheared once a year in order to take advantage of the length of their locks – often up to 11″ in their youth. The fleece is then sent to Moro Fleece Works and made into luscious pencil roving for the discerning spinner. Wensleydale wool is admired for its beautiful luster, and this roving certainly has loads! The natural colors are delightful as is, or you can blend with other fibers to take advantage of their lock length and beautiful sheen. They wool and the yarn dye like silk, yielding very vibrant colors.
These two bags were stored for a while, so the loft has been somewhat compacted, but it still spins up beautifully and has a silky hand if not over-spun. Other silver roving is available as braids or in bulk.
It will knit up or weave a very soft, warm item.
