These rovings are from a US mill. The rovings are made from wool from sheep in the US of various breeds such as romney and corriedale. The rovings may be used for felting and spinning. The staple length is 3-4 inches. I particularly like to use these wools for top coats on 3-dimensional needle felted animals and in 2-dimensional needle felted paintings of animals. Redwood has hints of other colors running through it. It is fun to use for making trees.
