Bags full of roving

When I ship my fleeces off to be processed every year I wait anxiously to see the end result. Every time it is a bit different and the excitement of opening the boxes is thrilling. This year I had all my fiber made into roving. I have a ton of it. Beautiful, luxurious and soft alpaca roving. I also had a 50/50 mix of cormo/merino and alpaca. The result is a beautiful chocolate brown.
