There are rovings for sale! This is "Blueberry Squishy" and it is a blend of Merino and Silk. There are 2 available at $24 (4oz each). Extremely soft and has a luster due to the silk. This is "Coral Beauty" and it is Blue Faced Leicester. This is a great beginner's wool. There is one available for $20 (4oz).
More BFL in the "Mango Mango" colorway. There is one available at $20 (40z)
There are others too, in BFL and a Merino / Tencel blend. I need to find some better light for the rest of the pictures.
This one I kept for myself! More Merino / Silk in the "Yule" colorway. The skein is 2 oz (half of the original amount) and there are 366 yards. I chain (navajo) plied it to keep the color changes very clear, and it came out to a fingering weight. I wish I had had a quarter to include for scale.
And close up you can see the shimmer.
See? I do spin! Last night I even got out the book charkha and attacked the pile of cotton. I need to get back to work on the dishcloth project so that I can get them off the loom, up for sale, and warp up some silk for scarves.
