Pin-Drafted Columbia - Spin, Knit or Felt it!

This pin-drafted roving is about the diameter of a pencil and it can be spun, used in felting to created defined lines, and can even be knit directly as is! It comes wrapped in a center pull skein, doubled, as you would want to knit with it and this way you get a 4.5 st/inch gauge.

If you spin it as a double, you get about a sport/d.k. gauge yarn....or separate the strands....they are not plied together at all....and you'd get a nice lace-fingering weight yarn. EASY to spin.....

And lay it on the surface of your felt and it needles into a very sharp line....or wet felt it too. Perfect to make easy "cobweb" lace!

If you're interested in some variegated colors, check out the new Noro pin drafted roving here. And for Icelandic pencil roving, check out Plotulopi here.
