The Salty Seas colorway is part of our watercolors collection. The collection was custom designed and dyed by Sheridan Flats using inspiration from watercolor paintings. The teal and blue is reminiscent of the waters found where the trade winds blow. The silk strands will remind you of whitecaps and sea spray. This one looks like it may be difficult to spin but the silk strands are thin enough that they draft right in.
- Sold by the ounce with discounts applied for volume purchases.
- The fleece was produced by Midge, Wilbur and Flynn, all part of an extended family. Border Leicester wool and silk strands.
- Wool and Silk
- 6-7″ Staple length
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. 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. The sample swatch is underway and will be available soon.
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.
