Handspinning, anyone? Whether you work with a wheel or a drop spindle, you’ll enjoy this fiber fresh from our farm. It’s from the wool of our Polypay sheep, processed at a Michigan woolen mill.
A note about farm-fresh roving. Our wool is cleaned with soap and water. Unlike some commercially produced wool, it is not processed using hydrochloric acid or other harsh chemicals. This makes it more skin-friendly and eco-friendly. However, the gentle processes used may allow a bit of hay to remain in the roving. This can be easily picked out as you spin the wool or use it for felting.
Every effort has been made to adequately reproduce the color of our roving. Please remember, however, that computer monitors display color differently.
Shady Side Farm is located in Holland, Michigan, and specializes in providing locally grown products.
