Great source for wool rooving!
Today I want to showcase The Pines Farm in Maple Valley, Washington. This farm is owned by friends and, they produce some extraordinary wools and meat. Lin has many different colors of roving available for you to order. The roving I purchased was very clean, with just a few pieces of debris that were easy to remove while spinning. You can also buy sheep and goats from them.
I got hooked on spinning after getting a couple lessons from Lin. I loved spinning wool, but never could figure out what to do with it once I had it spun, LOL! Neither knitting or crochet is my forte. Plus, after moving to Texas working with wool seems a little pointless. While working to thin out some of my craft paraphernalia, I sold my Ashford Kiwi Spinning Wheel using CraigsList. I do miss spinning, but my embroidery machine sure makes up for it!
Here is a picture of some of the roving available at The Pines Farm. If you know someone that spins, getting them a pound or two of this gorgeous roving would make a wonderful gift!
