Hand Dyed Roving

I have an etsy shop now!  It can be found here.  I’ve been busily hand painting rovings all week and it’s be soooo much fun!

I’ve used a variety of different wools most of which I’ve spun before and am deciding on my favorites.

As a spinner I like woolier wools, meaning I like those that aren’t super fine and have a little bit of rusticness to them. 

What I’d love to know is what are other spinners favorite fibers?  I know there is a ton of merino out there but is that because dyers assume spinners want it or is that really the favorite?  Please comment to let me know!

  1. Beautiful dyed fiber! I’m not a fan of merino, I like to spin BFL, Falkland, Polwarth for instance (and many more). Not a great fan of slippery fibers. If I would not be burried in fiber already I’m sure I’d find something in your store. BTW the link is not working.

    • The link is now fixed. Thanks for letting me know that! 🙂 I am trying to dye every other fiber besides merino. I think it’s over rated too, but you never know how other people think. I have a pollworth fleece coming that I will be dying and there will be icelandic, targhee, more corriedale, and shetland 🙂 Thanks fo rthe comments! Preita
