This roving is shades of red, orange and yellow.
This is a hand painted roving for spinning and felting.
Falkland is not a specific breed, but rather is grown to a specification and blended. There are Corriedale, Polwarth, Dohne Merino and other breeds on the islands. Since there are no sheep diseases on the islands, the animals are never dipped so there are not any organo-phosphate or pyrothroid sheep dip residues on the wool.
Our rovings are dyed with fairly even distribution of colors. Photos are of each side of the coil, so you can see as much of the color as possible. These are the same rovings from which I spin my yarns, so I dye them for that.
