BFL Wool Roving
These beautifully (and locally!! Just around the corner in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia) hand-dyed BLF (Bluefaced Leicester) braids of wool roving are dyed with 100% natural materials creating lovely earthy hues.
Natural dyes are sources of color derived from plants, minerals, and, in some cases, insects. All braids of The Purl Scout roving are dyed with natural dye extracts or food waste such as avocado skins and pits.
All hand-dyed roving is unique and no braids skeins will be exactly alike. Due to the nature of different fibers, colorways will differ in color brightness and density depending on the base fiber being dyed. The Purl Scout supplies its wool from folks that are certified RWS (Responsible Wool Standard). This means that they have farmers that are recognized for their best practices, ensuring that wool comes from farms that have a progressive approach to managing their land, practice holistic respect for animal welfare of the sheep, and respect the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare.
These 4oz braids are made with 100% untreated BFL (Bluefaced Leicester).
