Crabapple Merino wool Roving top, Needle Felting, Spinning Fiber, red violet, dark pink, deep fuchsia, magenta


Build or enhance your color palette using your favorite colors-and get a few samples to play and blend with too!

You'll get one ounce of Crabapple Merino roving, with 3 free samples of fibers, (limit 12) varying in texture, color, type for your fiber project. If you find something you would like more of, send us a pic of the sample--it's likely we can make you more of just that blend. We draft the remnants of spinning and carding for your samples and these are really pretty fibers!

Some of the ways that you can use these are:
--supplement your existing fiber supply with just the color you need/want.
--Expand your library of color, texture without having to make a large investment in full sized fiber batts and roving
--discover new color combinations! (Seriously.. some of our favorite batts have been inspired by
the process of preparing these little morsels!)
--embellish your needle or wet felting endeavors
--combine them with any of our other kits to expand your color, texture possibilities

The first four photos are that of the one ounce of fiber you are buying. The lastphoto is meant to show a variety of possible fibers/samples that you will receive. If you have a color preference, just let us know. If not, we will likely send colors that blend or coordinate with your original purchase. You might just love being surprised! :D (many of them include very fine, luxurious fibers as well as glittery fibers)

*All in a biodegradable, cello bag :D

*Some free samples are bigger, some smaller. We will likely pick those that look most pleasing with the color that you ordered, so no weight/quantity is guaranteed or implied with your free gift. That said, most weigh *about* .1/ounce

*We sometimes ship/store our wool products with lavender. Please let us know if your allergies are an issue.

*Our products are photographed in with an effort to provide as much color info as possible. Please keep in mind that all monitors display color differently.

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

Wholesale availability

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

This was a beautiful color just way more purple than I was anticipating. I had planned to blend the 3 reds I ordered to make a newborn sized Red Riding Hood cape. I ended up only using the Red and the Crimson and wished I had ordered more.

Wildethyme is a wonderful Esty Shop to deal with! Shipping is quick, the prices are fair, and everything is carefully packed. The various wool top and rovings I have found here work wonderfully for me. I feel like I am in a candy shop with all the beautiful color choices. Because I have ordered a number of different colors and wool types, I’m simply going to repeat this review for each. Every order has been excellent and Laura and Steph are exceptionally pleasant and helpful to work with. Thank you!!

This color is so beautiful! And the fiber is very soft. Thank you!
