50% SILK 50% SUPERWASH MERINO ROVING

This is a great blend, not just a little silk but 50% giving it a very lustrous sheen, takes the dye very quickly and is so easy to spin. This is the same roving used to make the 50/50 Silk/Merino yarn.


70% SUPERWASH MERINO 30% SEACELL PENCIL ROVING

JUST LIKE THE YARN but you can spin your own, this pencil roving makes it so easy and a pleasure to spin. It dyes very quickly with acid dyes or natural dyes and has a lovely sheen.


BAMBOO PENCIL ROVING

"Bamboo fibre is made of cellulose and is being produced by processing methods such as steaming and boiling etc. The fibre does not contain any chemical additives. It has unique antibacterial, deodorant, colouration, elasticity, drapability and wearability characteristics. Notable are also moisture absorption and ventilation. Because of its special structure and natural "hollowness" in the horizontal cross sections, the abundant gaps in the fibre can absorb and evaporate the moisture of human skin instantly."

BLUE FACE LEICESTER ROVING

This is super fine Blue Face Leicester, and is almost as soft as a Merino fibre, it takes the dye quick and is a pleasure to spin.


100 % MERINO - NATURAL COLOUR PENCIL ROVING

This is an untreated, 24 micron count Merino fibre, it is a pleasure to spin and is also feltable.


80% SUPERWASH MERINO/20 % NYLON MILL END ROVING

This is the fibre that is used to make the Merino/Nylon yarn. I have never used a product with nylon that was this soft, takes the dye quickly and evenly. Make a great sock yarn, scarves, shawls and baby wear.


MILK TOP ROVING

"Milk protein fibre is healthy for skin, comfortable, with bright colours due to good dye ability. The milk protein fibre can be spun purely or with cashmere, silk, cotton, wool or other fibres to knit or weave. It passed the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 green certification for the international ecological textiles."


100% SEACELL ROVING

"Seacell is a cellulose based fiber manufactured using the Lyocell process. The structure facilitates the active exchange of substances between the fiber and the skin - nutrients such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin E are released by the natural body moisture when the fiber is worn, creating a complete sense of well being. The textile properties also offer advantages such as breathability and softness."


100 % SUPER FINE MERINO - UNTREATED - FELTABLE

This is a 19 micron count Merino fibre, it will felt very easily and is a pleasure to spin. It dyes very quickly with acid dyes or natural dyes.


100 % TUSSAH SILK ROVING

Tussah silk is wildcrafted, and thus it is naturally both organic silk and "Peace Silk" suitable for vegetarians. Tussah or wild silk worms live naturally in tropical or semi-tropical forests. Their silk is gathered after the moth emerges. Tussah is generally stronger and more resilient than cultivated silk."


SOY SILK TOP ROVING

"Soy silk is made of left overs from the tofu manufacturing process. It is soft, lustrous, a pleasure to spin and knit. It truly resembles silk in appearance and handling. Soy silk alone or with 25% fine wool adds memory and bounce while maintaining the softness and luster of Soy. Use it unspun to make paper or beautiful felted fabric."


100 % SUPER FINE MERINO - UNTREATED - FELTABLE

This is a 22 micron count Merino fibre, it will felt very easily and is a pleasure to spin.


100 % SUPERWASH MERINO

This is a 22 micron count Merino fibre, it is a pleasure to spin.
