Romeldale / CVM sheep are considered by the Livestock Conservancy to be a critically endangered American sheep breed with a global population of fewer than 2,000 animals. At Phoenix Farm, we keep 2 of these beautiful animals for wool: Detroit and Beck (pictured last). The California Variegated Mutant (CVM) is a lovely color variation of the Romeldale sheep. The roving in this listing is made up of wool from our very own sheep, Beck! It is a lovely natural oatmeal color with cream and brown tones.

The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook lauds Romeldale wool for its natural colors, fineness, and crimp. It reports that Romeldale wools "are a good selection for next-to-the-skin garments and for knitters who want soft, lofty yarns." This wool does not disappoint! It was carefully sheared and skirted to remove soiled fiber and vegetative matter. The fiber was carefully washed and locally processed for a roving that is light, soft, and easy to spin in a natural oatmeal color. It spins into a nice ecru or cream yarn. It is a lovely natural color, but also takes dye well.

This roving is light and airy and spins with ease -- no pre-drafting required! It comes to you wound into four 1-ounce balls for ease of use and is ready to spin right out of the bag!

Stored in a pet- and smoke-free environment.

Hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry. This wool does felt.
