Cheviot Wool Roving

This Cheviot wool is ideal for hand spinning. If you are just learning to spin, you will find that Cheviot wool is easy to work with. Experienced spinners also appreciate Cheviot wool for its versatility and as a superior wool for dyeing, either before or after spinning. Cheviot wool roving resists felting and is much less likely than most other types of wool to mat or tangle during the dye process. It also produces lovely results when left its natural creamy color.

Very similar to Dorset, with a spiral crimp and incredible bounce. Cheviot is a very old breed originally from Spain, and long established in the English Downs. Like many of the downs breeds, Cheviot can be variable.  This Medium to Soft Cheviot is soft enough for good socks and next-to-skin wear, while other coarser Cheviot is better suited for hard wearing outerwear.
