Basket Full of Roving

Roving

All the wool roving from Maggie's Farm has come from my Lincoln and Lincoln x CVM sheep. The sheep are coated throughout the year with the coats being resized as needed. We shear our sheep twice a year. They are sheared in early spring and again in the fall. Each fleece is heavily skirted before it is cleaned and carded and turned into some of the most wonderful roving you may ever spin. Our palette of naturals includes; the purest whites, pewters, medium gray heathers, dark charcoal heathers, and black. Because my sheep wear coats, the fleece tips are not weathered. On a black sheep this means the wool is dark for the entire staple length. This consistent coloration makes a remarkably dark roving from my black sheep.

Aran is a Lincoln x CVM ewe. Her snow white roving has both luster and softness. This roving lends itself to dyeing, but makes a gorgeous white yarn also. Very clean and a joy to spin.

Alfalfa is a wether in my flock. He and Aran are twins. The roving made from Alfalfa's fleece has a soft hand and because of his CVM breeding exhibits beautiful, blended variegation. I love spinning 2 - ply yarns from this roving.

Anise Roving

  • Swatch of Anise RovingSwatch of Anise Roving

Anise is a Lincoln ewe. Her roving has the softest, tightest crimp of any of my wools. The color is dark, dark, chocolate. Her shorter, finer staple is a little slower spin but her exceptional color makes the effort worthwhile.
