Scrap fiber spinning felting rolags "Spring Cleaning:The Neutral Zone" fiber art rolags, spinning fiber, nuno felting, black white grey


Our Neutral Zone scrap batts are now available as rolags! This is a great way to find out if rolags are for you :D

We card the blacks on both ends, with warm colors (beiges, browns, golds…) on one side of the rolag and cool colors (blacks, browns, grey, violet, blues…) on the other—with the lightest colors and whites in the middle and pops of color through out the whole piece. Order two oz, or many, but know that your rolags will be a surprise!

Available colors depend largely on what we have carded and dyed of late.

User tip:
You can you pull on the ends to create roving. With this roving, you can spin it in to yarn, create cobweb lines in nuno felting, needle felting... Of course, you can always wet felt them, as is, to make dred locks!

-- You recieve 2-3 in one ounce depending on how thick we roll them :D

-- We create these rolags on our blending boards and our carders as well
as mini batts and scrap yarn !

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

These are simply beautiful! Just the right colors for the person I had in mind. Wildethyme is fast becoming my favorite colorful fiber source. Thank you for the perfect service!

These rolags are GREAT! I love the fade from black to white to brown and back, and the little pops of color. Everything I buy from Laura and Steph is gold, they never disappoint!

Fun coming up. My mind just keep going and going. Quality is tops, shipping and packing Wow.

gorgeous colors. Shipped on time. Had wonderful lavender sachets inside that package. When I opened the package a wonder lavender aroma met me. Nice touch!

Oh my gosh! I am loving this rolag so much! It’s like a big mystery, you don’t know what’s going to come out of it. I keep taking pictures of it on my spindle because it’s changing so much. There a million different colors and fibers, there might be belly button lint in it, I’m not sure.🤷‍♀️ But it’s really beautiful!!!
