Pure wool roving
We've teamed up with Oakland, California-based fiber artist Meghan Shimek, to bring you this collection of our favorite roving. This line is our long-time dream as friends and collaborators; we've been geeking out about fiber together since we first met in 2015.
In addition to our original 1-pound ball collection, we now bring you 3-yard increment sets! Perfect for smaller weaving projects, felting and general forays into roving craft merriment. Choose between the complete 12-color set (the full rainbow of colors in our standard collection) or the option to create your own 6-color set. Each individual bundle is 3-yards in length. Going with a 6-color set? Jot down all 6 color names in an email and send to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll create your custom set for you. Though not pictured here, feel free to add our new seasonal colors—Dragonfruit & Raspberry Sorbet—to your six-color selection.
Every cute little bundle in this collection is incredibly soft, pure wool fiber and has a solid sourcing story behind it...
> Our Merino wool is dyed using only OEKO-TEX certified pigments (and is thus AZO free, yay)
> It’s ethically sourced from farms that do not practice mulesing & follow the Five Freedoms of animal welfare
> Our sourcing partners work hard to support the fair of employment of farm workers and stewardship of rangelands
This collection is ideal for weaving projects, check out Meghan's off-loom weaving tutorial HERE! It's also great for felting, knitting, crocheting and a myriad of other wild and creative projects.
We hope you'll enjoy working with it as much as we loved every minute of designing it!
