Merino Roving

When we purchased the Ashford Country Spinner from Alaska, we were sent a fair amount of dyed Merino roving as well. This was something somewhat out of the "norm" for us since we tend to mainly spin natural colored fleece. I have a hard time knowing what the finished yarn will be like by just looking at the top or roving, but Susie felt the end result was going to be very nice. (I don't have ANY problem knowing if I like it BEFORE it's spun but the finished piece can sometimes be very disappointing!) These colors blended well at the wheel and the spinning went very smoothly. Susie has something different she is doing with the yarn and I will be posting pictures of that as well!
