We have rovings for sale. They are from the shearing of our sheep. They are all natural colored. The sheep were carefully shorn, and the fleeces skirted well. The wool was sorted and sent to Zeilinger or Stonehedge Mill for processing into roving. They are for sale for $3 per ounce.
We have five natural shades from our Shetland sheep. They are (from left to right) mioget katmoget, mioget, moorit, grey and black. Then we have some brown CVM roving on the right.
The mioget katmoget roving is from our sheep, Jemima and Ewegenie. They have intermediate style Shetland fleeces. The resulting roving is cream colored and soft.
The mioget roving is from our sheep, Jocko, Bambam and Harlen. They also have intermediate style Shetland fleeces. The roving is a pretty golden brown color and is also soft to the touch. It is no longer for sale.
The moorit roving is from our sheep Amanda, Miss Lizzie and Heidi. They have intermediate style Shetland fleeces. Their wool is chocolate brown and soft.
The grey roving is from Moni, Suzette, Madonna and Jewel. These sheep have more double-coated Shetland fleeces. The roving is a little less soft and has more variation in fiber lengths. It is actually darker than the photo shows.
The black roving is from our sheep Diddley, Jet and Mona. They definitely have double coated fleeces. So the roving is a little coarser with varying fiber length and some kemp fibers. The roving is darker than the photo shows.
The CVM roving is from our CVM ewe named Mutiny which is based on her personality. Fortunately she has nice wool that is light brown in color. Unfortunately she tends to be a chowhound and there is some VM in her roving.
