This listing is for 1 oz. of beautiful chunky corriedale wool roving. I have carefully chosen this wool for its consistent superb quality and beautiful coloring.

Meet Fox, a warm and rich rusty color.

This is a medium fine wool, very soft to the touch, but still with plenty of crimp for felting.

The particular roving is almost a cross between the other roving and batting batting we carry in that it still comes in a rope-like strip, but the fibers are not as aligned as our other rovings, so this is easier to pull apart, similarly to batting. I use it primarily for needle felting, but it is also wonderfully suited for wet felting and spinning.


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.
