This is a gorgeous brown. Not too red, or too green, neutral... This is a velvety want-to-melt it over ice cream brown. It is also a limited edition fiber. When it's gone, we don't know if we'll have it again or not. This is exactly the kind of thing that makes Laura want to keep it locked up tight (and sometimes she does!) but all beautiful fiber deserves a chance to fulfill its' fibery destiny. So... here we are...
This listing is for 1 oz. of gorgeous, Vibrant Brown Bamboo from viscose. One ounce of bamboo roving is about the size of a small tangerine.
Bamboo is a cellulose fiber so it does not wet felt *by itself*. It's used in Nuno Felting in the way that silk is--by blending it with wool so that it is trapped by the wool. It can also be used in needle felting, but, again, we recommend blending it with other, less slippery fibers for the best results.
*Shipped in a biodegradable, cello bag-- which will also not last forever-but in a totally different way. :D
*We ship and store our wool/ fiber products with lavender. Please let us know if your allergies are an issue.
*Our products are photographed in varying lights in an effort to provide as much color info as possible. Please keep in mind that all monitors display color differently, sometimes... very differently :D
A note about fiber terminology is in order here. We use the term “roving” because it has become the broad, sort of “catch-all” category to describe fibers that are arranged in a long length of fiber used for spinning and felting. In a true roving, the staples are different lengths and are arranged in different directions. “Top” is a long length of fibers whereby the the staple is of all similar lengths and arranged in the same direction. So while we labeled this wool roving to fit Etsy’s categories, this is an ounce of wool top. :)

Frequently Asked Questions
We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)
Custom and personalized orders
The ability to customize, personalize orders is the number one reason we work mostly on a "made to order" basis. We want you to have everything just as you need/want it! We understand that this makes our shipping times slower, but we hope you will agree that we are worth the wait :)
Does your roving come in one, continuous piece?
Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.
Why is the shipping so high? Can you fix it?
It's a long, convoluted answer having to do with the fact that we offer variations of weight in our batts and other items. We pay the extra shipping on larger batts, but we have no way of setting the shipping lower on the sample sizes, so we have to meet somewhere in the middle --which is often WAY too much if you are ordering a quantity of sample batts.
And yes. We can fix it, just message us. Or.. check out and leave us a note reminding us to refund your excess shipping. Either way, we understand. We hate overpaying for shipping too :D
You forgot my felting needles. Will you send them?
If we forgot them, of course we will :D
But first... take a peek on the side of the foam. 99.99% of the time, they are there, just overlooked.
Why does it take 10-14 days to mail a batt?
We dye a very large proportion (60-75%!!) of our wool, Firestar and Silk. We're really proud of the number of colors we offer-- and we only have plans to do more. We do this because it the work we love to do, it's one of many things that we think make our work worthwhile, special. Additionally, we do not want our batts sitting in inventory, compacting from lack of use. And then... what if you want to customize the batt? We do that too :D
We make our batts to order because we make them for you— and we make a LOT of them, so there is usually a line when you order as well. We think they are worth the wait and hope that you will too. Naturally, if you need something faster, let us know. We work magic, that's what we do :D
