Lacaune pin-drafted roving
A very limited edition pin-drafted roving dyed with natural dyes that has been grown and processed within a 40-kilometre radius.
The wool of the Lacaune milk sheep on a nearby dairy farm would have otherwise been composted and was considered worthless. I have sorted, scoured and dyed the wool myself using natural dyes.
Pin-drafted roving is similar to top as fibres are drafted parallel to each other, yet different in that all fibre lengths remain in the preparation. Lacaune wool is sproingy with distinct character and approximately 8 cm staple length. Sold in 50 g increments.
