MILL END ROVINGS
This used to be the way the mill end rovings
arrived at The Sheep Shed Studio. Now they
are in short supply, and we don't get any of
these big loads anymore.
|NOTE: THESE ROVINGS ARE MILL ENDS!!!!
They are not perfect, they have been tossed in boxes, put in
bags, hauled, stored in bins. They are top spinning and
felting fibers, but may not be exactly as pictured.
We are selling more mill ends than we are bringing in. We
will fill orders with what we have.
Odds and Ends IN
Grab Bags or
9.00 PER LB. FOR STRAIGHT

GrabBags are filled with the
fibers that don't fit the roving
category. The fiber might be
filmy batts, or chunks of
roving cut to free the
machines. It could be a
combination of carded
fibers. Mostly batts and bells
will be found in this bag.
Funky Bags, mostly roving.
All is spinable, wool is
it will be assorted colors
of fiber. NO CHOICE!
|Credit Cards now taken on
the Paypal order form!!
|We used to sit for hours
sorting the good longer
rovings for the Mill End Roving
Selection. All rovings are a
minimum of approx. one foot in
length. We have little to sort
We try very hard to pick out all
Superwash but we cannot
guarantee that we might not
$9.00 per pound and
up all washed, carded
fiber...not all roving,
now called Funky Bags
|Our Mill End Supply is very short!
Today, July 1, 2014, we are at a point , we will not
have a large enough supply of mill ends to give you a
choice. We will begin selling Funky Bags...can be
some of everything, all of one style, just whatever we
can glean from the bins. Grab Bags are chunks,
batts and bells. All good fiber, but not all roving.
|We have very few of the colored tones of Mill
End Roving in the black, brown shaded, often
striped rovings. Rarely do some red, green or
blue might appear. We will try to give you as
much as possible in one variety, but anymore
we don't have enough of one variety to fill a
larger order. Then you get a assortment of all
the Mill End Fiber tones to mix and match.
|MILL END ROVING WOES
The mill has improved their
performance with the machines and
well trained folks running them. This
is good for the mill, not so good for
Assorted rovings, rolls, pieces,
etc. will be in any Funky Bag
order. It is always a possibilty
some could be superwash as well,
hard as we try to keep them
apart Know this before you buy.
If you want to be sure the wool is
all the same, buy the #1 wool
from the WHITE PAGE. Thanks!
We attempt to keep the
Superwash and the
wool rovings apart, but
might toss superwash
into the wool bags.
Please test before
|We do have whites in
full bump lengths on
the #1 wool top
rovings page and on
the White Page.
