Chevoit Wool Roving



Product Details

Cheviot are among the smaller of the sheep breeds, originally bred to withstand the damp and cool weather of the Cheviot Hills, located between Scotland and England.  Popular legend has it that Cheviot are descended from sheep that swam ashore from the sunken ships of the Spanish Armada fleet of 1588, but these sheep have actually been recognized as a distinct breed since the late 1300s.

Cheviot wool has a helical crimp, which makes for a nice springy yarn with good resilience.  It is a good wool to spin on its own, or to blend with other fibers.

This roving is sold in one ounce weights
