I have carefully selected all of the wool I offer in my shop. This beautiful fiber is the very same wool roving and batting I use in my own needle felting practice. It is also wonderfully suited for wet felting and spinning. The roving is also a favorite for weavers!
The consistent superb quality and gorgeous nuanced coloring will add richness and depth to all of your projects!
Wondering about the difference between batts and roving? Here is a brief breakdown of these two types of wool with emphasis on their uses for needle felting:
Batts (or batting, or fleece) and roving have both been pulled through carding machines which comb and align the fibers to some degree. But with batting, the wool comes off the machine in thin sheets which are layered to form thicker fluffy sheets. The layering results in a textured wool where the fibers are no longer aligned, making it perfect for needle felting as it felts up very quickly. Roving, on the other hand, is processed one step further and pulled off the machine in ropes where the fibers are mostly aligned. Though the fibers are more aligned, this form of wool still retains the wool’s natural crimp, making it another excellent choice for needle felting.
