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 (our full rainbow of roving colors) 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 the notes section at checkout and we'll create your custom set for you.
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!
