Custom luxury blend of CVM (California Variegated Mutant) wool, a rare breed listed as endangered by the ABLC, blended in a super soft roving with black alpaca, white silk, silver gray mohair, and white bamboo. This forms a heathery effect when spun in a lovely pale silvery gray.The third picture is a sample yarn spun lofty at a heavy worsted or bulky weight.
CVM is as soft as merino but with a longer staple length. It is usually a colored fleece. This one is from Ella, a pretty girl in nearby Cedar Falls, IA. CVM can be spun in lofty yarns or very finely. This is an absolute dream to spin, drafts like butter. The price reflects the rarity of this fiber and the expense involved in bringing it to you, but you will love the natural silver/gray or enjoy overdying it if you seek to produce a depth with the natural variegation. Please note, bamboo does not take acid fast dyes as well as protein fibers and will introduce an effect of scattered highlights in the yarn that will be glistening. I really love it. Notably, CVM also felts very easily, and this mixture would be gorgeous used in nuno felting on silk.
This item will be 4 ounces of roving, ready to spin. I have more, so please convo me for amount that you wish to purchase. The roving is slightly more expensive to ship for weight than yarn because I do not pack in a poly mailer but ship to you boxed to prevent smashing of your lovely lofty spinning fiber.
CVM, Ella from Jenny's Spindling Fiber. Alpaca, Jakira Farms, Mohair from Ronan Country Fibers. These are a few of the small producers we use. Their animals are raised as carefully as possible. Beautiful fiber can only come from a healthy animal.
