Beautiful and springy Hebridean roving and batts.
Three Hebridean boys (Eigg, Jura and Steve), wethers originally from Wimpole Farm (NT) who now live at Nowton Park in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. They help with looking after the wildflower meadows at the park and produce beautiful fleece that is a delight to spin. Takes strong natural dyes well, like weld, woad and madder.
This is a blend of the 2021 and 2022 clip, lovingly washed, carded and prepared into roving by Shire Mill. Great for spinning, makes a fab weaving yarn.
Batts are a minimum of 100g (usually in the range 110-125g). The roving at at thinner size ideal for hand spinning.
By purchasing these roving or batts you are supporting UK native breeds, a small producer and a small family run mill, thank you :)
