Good to know!

Thanks you all!  I'll see what I can find for actual roving if I can't find any I'll try with combed out yarn.  I'll post pics either way. 

Would ebay be a good source for roving or can anyone reccomend an online resource (that's not TOO expensive). 

Sometimes you can get great deals on ebay, sometimes not.  Check the Favorite Resources here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=66730.0  You may find something quicker in that.

I don't have anything posted that I've done with this, but only SMALL things (ie I'm not doing full bags. My shoes come first so I don't want to mess up their brush)  I have only used it for felt flowers and details. The Lamb's Pride pulls apart very quickly in comparison to other yarns, but still it is too tedious to pull apart yarn for a full project.

Thanks so much!
