Brand New Roving Selections in the Shop

These are so pretty!  We need to set aside some for myself so we actually get some of them.

Babydoll Southdown Roving - Item #14-0002
Babydoll Southdown Roving - Item #14-0002
This is a lovely, white Babydoll Southdown roving from sheep out of Kentucky. It does contain some vegetation, but none that can't be easily removed while spinning. This fiber would be great for mittens, hats, sweaters or anything not worn next to the skin. Due to its white color, this would be beautiful dyed as well. The cost is for 4 ounces.
Available Qty: 15
Price: $12.00

Medium Gray Alpaca Roving - Item #14-0003
Medium Gray Alpaca Roving - Item #14-0003
This is a silky-soft alpaca that would dye, spin, knit or weave up beautifully. From the same breeder as Ethan from earlier this year. An Indiana bred and raised alpaca. Price is for 4 ounces.
Available Qty: 7
Price: $18.00

Cotswold Roving - Item #14-0004
Cotswold Roving - Item #14-0004
This is a lovely, white Cotswold roving with lots of luster. This would look beautiful dyed and spun up for anything you want long-wearing. So, think mittens and socks for this fiber. Price is for 4 ounces.
Available Qty: 15
Price: $12.00

Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) Roving - Item #14-0005
Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) Roving - Item #14-0005
This nice BFL roving is from Graham of Punkin's Patch (http://myfavoritesheep.blogspot.com/), so for those of you who love him or loved the fiber of his you bought from last year's fleece, we have more of it all ready for your use. Great for harder wearing outerwear like sweaters, socks and mittens. Same price as last year's, too! Price is for 4 ounces.
Available Qty: 12
Price: $12.00

Horned Dorset Roving - Item #14-0006
Horned Dorset Roving - Item #14-0006
This Horned Dorset roving is from a central Indiana flock that has been showing at the Indiana State Fair. As you know, we love helping local breeders and shepherds find an outlet for their nicest fleeces, and we wanted to let you see this. Horned Dorset spins up into a very nice, bouncy yarn (I have fallen in love with it-BGS) and would make great hats, sweaters, mittens or scarves. Because this is an uncoated flock, there is some vegetation in it, but it is easily removed while spinning. Price is for 4 ounces.
Available Qty: 42
Price: $12.00

Black Horned Dorset Roving - Item #14-0007
Black Horned Dorset Roving - Item #14-0007
This is a very rare fiber. Why is the black Horned Dorset so rare? Well, technically, there are no colored Horned Dorsets. This ewe, named Marley, was born to a mother who was white, a father who was white and whose twin sister was white. Either sometime way back in the past a sneaky ram got into the flock who was not a Horned Dorset, or there is a color mutation that developed to produce Marley. Either way, while Marley is registered, none of her lambs can be even if they are born white. Too bad, because, as hand spinners, we much prefer natural colored fleeces. The salt & pepper coloring of this roving would be fun to overdye. The white part would be pure hue and the dark gray would be a richer version of that color. Seriously, this would be a beautiful, heathered yarn and the sweater made from it would be a treat to see and wear. Price is for 4 ounces.

We have a YARNO winner!!

Congratulations to Cindy M of Florida!  She is our new YARNO winner.

So, clear your YARNO boards.  We’ll start again tomorrow morning.

We are on Facebook!

Yes, I caved.  That’s all I can say.  I have been told many, MANY times that we need to be on Facebook, so I gave in and did it.  I still have no idea what I am doing, and there is a huge learning curve going on, but if you could be so kind and to friend us on Facebook, then I can figure out how to friend you back and you can keep up with all of the stuff we are doing there as well as on the Dyed in the Wool site, maybe more.  I’m not sure as I really have no idea what I am doing – yet.

How is that for vague and convoluted?

Here is where we are.  Thank you!

Other uses for Fiber Binder Club yarn

Look at what Cindy of Delighted Hands is doing with the extra yarn spun from the Fiber Binder Club.  I can hardly wait to see what it looks like when it is done and blocked out.

YARNO

YARNO will pick up at noon on Monday the 30th.  I have food poisoning and am pretty sick.  I’m sorry.
