I’m trying to figure out how to make a spinning roving that has built-in color progression and is super-easy to spin from.
Now I think I almost got it..
This roving pulls from the center of the roll and should (at least in theory) allow the spinner to spin a continuos thread with long color sequenses. There’s about 80 grams of fiber here and 4 different colors – also different types of fiber! Mostly merino, but also Bluefaced Leicester and a little bit of wensleydale (locks) and flax.
It’s going to be sooo interesting to spin this! Will it be easy to pull out the roving – or will it break all the time? And what happens when I get to the outer layer? Will the whole thing collapse and turn into a sorry tangled mess? I guess I just have to give it a go.. 🙂
