Summary

Creation Details:

Entirely USA made of fiber from my Angora goats and sheep, supplemented with fibers from other small USA farmers. Dancing Waters Farm is a smoke-free, animal friendly farm (no animals are taken to slaughter) which is why the majority of my fibers are from goats more than three years old.

Processor (all small USA mills) is noted in the description as well as detailed fiber composition.  Batts are custom carded on the farm, and custom batts and colors can be created on request.

All prices include shipping up to a pound.  Compare to Knit Picks price for 100% white corriedale roving $6/ounce ($96/pound) excluding shipping.   Sampler packs can be made on request.

Dyed Roving Drying

Hand Painted Roving Drying

Fiber is hand washed and carded into roving. You may notice a small amount of vegetable matter (VM) as my fibers are gently processed (hand washed by me) with no harsh chemical treatments to dissolve vegetation or clean the fibers. It is also your assurance of the highest quality fiber, as it has not been weakened or damaged by processing.  Top is semi-worsted (random orientation of fiber locks vs all oriented in the same direction for true worsted top) at Zeilinger’s in MI.

The high mohair content ensures that products made from the roving, tops or batts are longer lasting and more lustrous than pure wool.

NOTE: Please contact me for at the farm pickup.
