I like to buy local and handmade whenever possible, but I came across this cool yarn a while back in my local craft store and wanted to share with you all. It’s called Patons Classic Wool Roving (affiliate link). This yarn is 100% wool and comes in a few different colors.
So normally wool roving is really thick, but this has been pulled with a very, very slight twist so it’s still roving but it’s kind of thin, at least as far as roving goes. What I like about this yarn is it has a crazy amount of texture. I actually used it in my weft facing weave example because it is thicker then a worsted weight yarn.
If you wanted, you could combine a few strands of this wool roving to create a thicker roving look. I’ve used this by itself and also paired it with a cotton yarn, which created a really interesting texture.
Do you prefer to buy handmade weaving supplies, or do you find yourself at stores like Joann more often? I would love to hear about any wishlist worthy items you have come across.
