Sustaina-Roving is the unspun roving form of our Yarn Over Yarn. Made from 50% reclaimed mill fibre + 50% "new wool" - a fibre they hasn't gone through our mill before.
Did you know that it is normal to experience a loss of 40% of weight for most yarns from fleece to final product? Some of that weight is lanolin and dirt but a lot of it is just fibre that falls/flies off the machinery during the yarn making process. Normally, this fibre is bagged up and disposed of. But we have reclaimed some of this fibre and blended it with a "new wool" to produce Sustaina-Roving.
This environmentally-friendly roving is fun and gives amazing results for both spinning and felting projects.
Price is per 50g. The current batch is waste blended with NSW-grown English Leicester.
