Roving

Most commonly used when referring to wool, roving consists of a long thick rope-like bundle of  fibre. From  either hand or machine carded fibre, a combing process creates a ‘sliver’ which aligns the fibres. For ease of use, given a slight twist, the sliver becomes roving.  Roving can be made from a variety of wools, plant and protein fibres  and blended together.  Dyeing and blending of natural roving produces an endless range of roving used for wet felting, needle felting, weaving, spinning and other textile arts.
