Charlie (Shetland) & Speedy (Lincoln x) Roving!

Add To Cart

Speedy and Charlie are good friends who spend time gossiping across the pasture fence. Speedy lives in our retirement group, Charlie in the younger group.

Speedy arrived as a bottle lamb 15 years ago. He was a sweet fellow and arrived with a gaggle of his lambie friends! Heaven! He still thinks everything shaped like a bottle IS a bottle. It is so easy to give him medicine when he needs it! ha! 

Charlie arrived here a year ago from a friend whose living situation changed, requiring her to re-home her flock. Charlie is 2 years old and quite a scamp. He could be a twin to our old Becan sheep- uh oh- double the hooligan personality. Charlie is very friendly now that he has discovered the allure of Vanilla Wafers. Gotcha!

This roving is a blend of Speedy's silver/dark silver wool and Charlie's red, single coated wool. He does not grow the outer, long coat most Shetlands do. His is just the soft undercoat. It is so soft and will be a pretty yarn or used in felt. Don't miss this roving- the sheep made me PROMISE to sell it, not squirrel it away in my shameful stash.... 

**This roving was difficult to photograph (we all know how well I get along with a camera right? Not)**
The color is a bit darker and shows off both the dark fleece from Speedy and the red from Charlie!

Price $3.25 per ounce
