This dye-free, 100% Shetland roving was processed at a local mill in small batches. Our flock of registered Shetland sheep are grass-fed through rotational grazing practices on our historic farm in northeastern Vermont. After shearing, our fleeces are hand-picked clean of debris and sent to the spinner. This roving was made after gentle washing and machine picking and carding.
Our roving comes in three colors: gray, moorit, and mioget. The gray is a mix of white, gray and black fibers, giving it a heathered appearance. Our moorit has hints of red and white, reflecting the variety of brown fibers in Shetlands. The mioget is a blend of cream and fawn, resulting in a heathered blend of honey-tan.
