We have rovings for sale. They are from the 2016 shearing of our Shetland sheep. They are all natural colored. The sheep were carefully shorn, and the fleeces skirted well. The wool was sorted and sent to Zeilinger Mill for processing into roving. They are now for sale for $3 per ounce.
The first roving listed is from our mioget katmoget sheep, Jemima and Ewegenie. They have intermediate style Shetland fleeces. The resulting roving is cream colored and soft.
The next roving is from our mioget 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.
Next we have our grey roving 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.
Finally we have our black roving 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.
