This gorgeous 100% Polwarth Wool roving is carefully dyed and braided by hand by the folks at Baltimore-based Neighborhood Fiber Co. Perfect for spinning, felting, and great in weavings, we love the subtle color variations and texture of this beautiful wool.
Polwarth Wool has a long staple length, producing a strong, silky, smooth yarn with lovely stitch definition. It's also a great choice for blending with other fibers.
Subtle color variations are achieved through Neighborhood Fiber Co.'s thoughtful kettle-dyeing process. Each braid is individually dyed, so while these images are representative of the color, your braid will not look exactly like the pictures. Each and every braid is truly unique!
Neighborhood Fiber Co. began in the kitchen of a basement apartment in the LeDroit Park neighborhood of Washington, DC. Stirred by her surroundings, Karida Collins set out to provide the world with hand-dyed yarns inspired by and named to reflect the natural beauty and diverse neighborhoods throughout the nation’s capital. Since then, she has added many more colors to reflect a multitude of neighborhoods, both inside and outside of DC. Now based in Baltimore, MD, Neighborhood Fiber Co. continues to offer vibrant, one-of-a-kind colors inspired by urban landscapes.
