Well, this is what is left of the fleeces from the Arizona State Fair. These last two Cotswold fleeces where the first place winners. I washed them earlier this week and they have been drying ever since. Lots of curls! Anyone want just curls?
This roving I dyed for the Fiber of the Month Club for January.
And for my next trick, I hand painted some CVM lamb and a bag of roving from my Juniper Moon Farm stash. It's 50% Cormo, 50% Mohair.
The roving in the front through about three quarters of the way down are all CVM. The last one is my stash.
The reason why I needed to dye this, rather than spin white and then dye, was because I had received some pre-painted roving last year from Juniper Moon. I also received the all white. I wanted more yarn to ply with, so I waited a while and kept learning about dyeing. You can see the results below. I think I was able to get pretty close to the colors I wanted to achieve. The ball of yarn is the single ply I spun last year from the pre-dyed roving.
Here are all the rovings, dried and balled up, ready to spin. Anyone want some?
