Too much? Or great price?
Spinners, I have a question. I found some roving online, a variety of colors totaling up to 3.25 ounces for $13. Is that a good price..or not?

it all depends on what kind of roving it is. If its alpaca or a silk blend, itll be more expensive. I got 4 ounces of wool blend roving for $5

I find it very pricey if it's wool. Also, a variety of colours totalling 3.25 oz will not give you very much of anything to spin.

Wow, that's expensive!

I keep a spreadsheet of all my fiber purchases, and my fiber has an average cost of about $1.50 per ounce.
