Hi All,

Just wanted to share my new find: The cheapest roving I have seen on the net! Carol is one of the nicest ladies ever, and she buys roving from a yarn mill that for whatever reason does not get processed. She has different colors, and the white wool roving is $7.50 lb!!! She also has a grab bag of various rovings for $6.00/lb.  I don't know about you guys, but since I spent so much on my spinning wheel, saving money on my fiber addiction is AWESOME! She also has this pretty black and white roving that looks pretty when dyed with different colors. Let her know Jennie sent ya'll over!

Yay! I just picked some up. I'm such a nerd, but I just got my drop spindle yesterday and already spun up almost all the wool I bought to practice with. I think this is more addictive than knitting!

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

hey, that's pretty cool!  not exactly "animal friendly" but def. is kind of recycling don't you think?  I mean, I imagine if people like Carol didn't take them, they'd just be thrown away!

haha, I ordered 10 lbs of the stuff  Tongue can't pass up that price right? And it definitely awesome that it's being recycled and sold to us cheaper!! yay for recycling! Let me know what you guys think of the stuff. I don't know exactly what wool roving this white stuff is, but it's soft, and definitely holds dye well.

Glad you guys liked the link!
