Dorset Down Roving—Gummi Bear

from 25.44

"Dorset Down sheep are so rare . . ."

"How rare are they?" you ask.

Even in the UK, where they were developed in the mid-19th century, they are rare. There are no flocks in North America—this roving came all the way from New Zealand.

Like the other five true Down breeds, Dorset Down is springy and resilient, with a slightly crisp hand, and it’s a perfect fiber from which to spin warm, lofty yarns that will take some abuse. Prepared here as a beautiful roving, Dorset Down will delight woolen spinners—and may even convince die-hard worsted spinners to let some twist into the drafting zone. Dorset Down will expand your spinning repertoire, but this is an undemanding fiber that will let you chillax in the process.

Sheepspot takes extra care in sourcing this wool, so you can explore your creativity secure in the knowledge that the materials you are using are of the highest quality, and have been sustainably and ethically produced.

All Sheepspot products come with a no-hassle money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with this fiber for any reason, just return it. No questions, no hoops to jump through, just a quick refund.

The distributor is out of this fiber, and I don’t know when or even if I’ll be able to get it again,  so don't hesitate! Click below and buy now.
