Shetland Wool Roving, Charcoal
Wool from Phoenix Farm is hand sheared every Spring from holistic pasture-raised animals -- it is 100% natural! We raise our sheep without the use of hormones or unnecessary antibiotics and they graze on lush grass grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizer.
This listing is for a 4 ounce braid of a beautiful Shetland roving from our wether, Angus (2nd & 3rd photo). It is a beautiful, rich silver gray-black with a long staple length, excellent crimp, softness, and strength. This wool is a beautiful marbled color that contains brown, black, and gray with some white as well. Angus' fleece has a long staple and is very fine, strong, soft, and lustrous.
This roving has been washed, picked through by hand to try to remove foreign matter and debris picked up in the field, and processed to a lovely roving. It is stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment. It is ready for you to spin or felt! Please note that this roving may have small bits of vegetative matter in it that is easily picked out during spinning. I skirt all my fleeces very heavily and hand-pick out any foreign material, but because our processing methods are chemical- and bleach-free (in order to protect delicate fiber), some small bits may be left behind that other chemical-heavy processes would obliterate.
