** In the video we split one strand of roving to make the braid. The roving listed for sale is NOT braided. Braiding is for ease of handling in our video and show the different colors.
Our 21 micron merino wool roving combed top is ultra soft and perfect for a variety of felting projects. It is so versatile that it is great for wet felting, Nuno felting, and needle felting. They are also amazing for spinning fibers so you can convert them into wool yarn for knitting. If the traditional felting and spinning is not your cup of tea, you can also use these luscious fibers for loom weaving and even chunky arm knitting. We carry these soft merino wool roving in 71 colors and you can even purchase them from us by the pound. Just message use for stock check and pricing.
* wet felting
* Nuno felting
* needle felting
* loom weaving
* chunky arm knitting - makes gorgeous blankets just like in the magazines BUT be aware that they only remain in that perfect state when the blanket is for display purposes only. Wool fibers are not woven so it will naturally pill/fuzz in a blanket, even if you lightly felt it. To avoid pilling and have a blanket for everyday use, you will need to felt the roving a good amount. YouTube is a great resource for some how-to videos. Generally speaking you felt with water, soap, heat, and agitation. We recommend a lot of felting if you can't stand fuzzy pills and slight to moderate felting if you are OK with some fuzz and prefer the fluffy/lofty blanket look.
