Static - Pin Drafted Roving, Blend No. 001
We're so excited to finally offer our own line of custom-blended pin-drafted roving!
Pin-drafted roving is one of Angela's favorite things to spin. If you're new to this kind of spinning fiber, here's a quick explanation: most people who've been to a yarn show will be familiar with top - the big, fat braids of fiber many dyers will offer. Top is the most common way that fiber mills will receive fiber from blenderes. Before the mill spins it, though, it needs to be pin-drafted. Once the fiber is pin-drafted, it's ready to spin... both at the mill and wherever you happen to be! Pin-drafted roving is particularly good for newer spinners - you can draft the fiber further if you want while you're spinning, but it's MUCH easier to do.
Unless otherwise indicated, each bag contains apx 100g of fiber.
