This is a 75/25 Shetland wool/alpaca blend roving. This Shetland wool is light oatmeal and comes from our own sheep "Andy." His fleece runs on the fine end for the breed (meaning softer) and is a favorite every year. The alpaca is a medium fawn color and just as lovely to the touch. There is minimal pilling but more VM than I like so some picking will be required while spinning. Spun up this will create a next to skin soft yarn for the average person.
Because this fiber is natural colors and has been blended there will be variations in the coloring throughout the roving.
