Faux Jacob Roving Project

In yarny news, I’ve been working on a new project. I really wanted to get some Jacob fleece and dye it in a rainbow colors but alas, Jacob fleece is rare and expensive. Feh. So I dug out some natural gray merino fleece I have a metric ton of. Then I dyed some white merino in rainbow colors. Then I blended each color with the gray and pulled it into roving.

So, like this:

White merino dyed:

Carded batts:


First Skein:

Nifty, huh? I spun a second skein last night and will finish the rest tonight. It’s been a lot of work but I’ve had fun with it.
