I got some wool roving to use for wet felting (Nuno felting) on silk chiffon scarves and it worked beautifully. It also dyed beautifully! It was a great deal too.

This was the first roving I've ever purchased knowing nothing about the product. I only bought it because it was the least expensive. However it spins very well. I was able to divide it up into eighths. I'd say that the fibers are about six inches long which made drafting quite simple with very few breaks. Only downside is that it can have a slight wet dog smell when wet but who cares? So what! Very lovely roving.

Lovely fiber. Would have liked to have known from what type of sheep this was from. I think it is merino but not sure would have liked to have known if it was top or not what grade of wool and the fiber length. These are just suggestions that you might want to add to the page. Other than those little things this is lovely fiber that takes dye very well.

I bought this wool for wet felting and I was beguiled by a reviewer saying it was like merino. It isn't. It did wet felt but it took longer and is not as soft. I may spin the rest - I think it might make good yarn.

I ordered the generic 1 lb bump of roving and 8 oz of the black Jacob roving. The generic is wonderful as always - very silky and soft. The Jacob surprised me with how long the staple is. I hadn't really paid much attention to staple length before I got my spinning wheel but it's noticeable how long it really is! Also it's much coarser than the generic and is pretty kinky. Makes beautiful yarn though. I'm going to weave it into some trim on an inkle loom.
