Romney Top and Roving - Natural colors
Romney is a good all-round wool spinning fiber, and WNC excels at top-quality Romney wool. Some of these will also wet-felt well, and that will be indicated in the description. We have Romney from two local farms, in an array of natural off-whites, greys and browns, in both top (excellent for worsted spinning) and roving.

WNC Alpaca Fiber
Long staple lengths, fine, soft and very warm, alpaca is definitely a luxury fiber.There is a thriving alpaca community here and we have some of the best local alpaca roving available, in gorgeous colors and several blends, at great prices. Alpaca blended with wool has the advantages of both fibers - the softness and warmth of alpaca with the spring and light weight of wool. A pleasure to spin or felt.Alpaca/Merino blend Roving - Light Fawn

WNC Gently Washed Fleece
This is the fleece right off the sheep, gently washed so the majority of lanolin, dirt and VM is gone, but the lovely locks are still in alignment and ready to process or use. Why get unprocessed fleece? Maybe it's because of the vastly lower price per ounce, maybe because it's a breed or color that isn't available in roving or top, maybe it's because you just love those plump packets of fibery goodness, waiting to be caressed into yarn or felted into cloth, right from the lock or fed into comb or carder. Whatever reason, we have local lovely fleeces ready for you.Romney - Var. Lt - Dk Brown
"Ada" from Whistlestop Farm, Valdese, NC. You can get at least 3 different colors from Ada's fleece, from light blonde to dark brown, perfect plump crimpy locks, 4" staple length, just right for carding or combing. Not good for felting.
English Leicester - White
"Holly" from Hidden Spring Farm, Snow Camp, NC. Beautiful long 8" curly locks, beautiful for dyeing and embellishing in felt, using for dolls hair and other applications. Recommend combing only, since carding will break the fibers. This fleece will spin into glossy strong worsted yarn. It also felts quickly and strongly for bags or hard wearing items.
