Lollipop Hand Painted Roving
Here's a couple ounces of hand painted Blue Faced Leicester. I just made this yesterday afternoon. It's along the lines of what I may start to offer next year in my shop. I do think I went a little wacky on the colors with this batch. I don't know what gets into me sometimes!
So I named this fiber Lollipop because it kind of reminds me of candy. I think I'm going to spin at least a couple ounces of it up in a thick and thin. I dyed 4oz so if anyone sees this post and really loves it, I'd be happy to make a listing at Wind Rose for the other two. I'm planning on selling my painted roving at $4 per oz for BFL and Merino.
Now I just have to design a few colorways that are less wacky. That should be fun though; play time in the dye kitchen!
Oh, One more thing. If I have any felters reading this post, I need your opinion. I was wondering if you would like a variegated roving like this one only in a variety of skin and earth tones. It would mean buying 4oz of roving all in one piece with probably five different useful colors. What do you think?
