The Purple Mist colorway is part of our watercolors collection. The collection was custom designed and dyed by Sheridan Flats using inspiration from watercolor paintings. This colorway has four shades of purple that meander down the length of the roving. The two shades of grey are consistent along the roving length. The mist will wander throughout your project and this soft squishy roving will be a pleasure to spin.

Sheridan Flats roving is produced from fleece grown on our farm in Washington. After being scoured and dyed here on the farm, it was professionally processed into roving at a local mill. We are proud to be part of the local fiber arts community and to offer products produced by small businesses in the US.
One of the joys of spinning is the ability to make the yarn uniquely yours. The sample shown is just one option. Make it thicker, thinner, more plies, less plies, strip the colors to spin into separate singles… and the list goes on. It’s all up to you. Have fun and enjoy the freedom to be creative.
Once the roving is spun into yarn or felted, hand wash only with cool water and a gentle wool shampoo. Use a towel to press out excess water, do not wring or twist. Air dry flat.
