This roving is shades of brown, rust, green and gray.
This is an earthy, streaked, natural brown BFL with 30% tussah silk blended into a nice handling top.
BFL is a “multipurpose” sheep breed dating back from the early 1900’s which produce “litters” of three or four lambs with long loins. I’ll leave the rest to your imagination. Fortunately, they also have a beautiful soft, long wool that is especially easy to spin, so they are raised to maturity for their lustrous fleeces.
My 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.
Fiber: 30% tussah silk / 70% BFL wool
