Dyed roving? - ordered
Does anyone have any colorful wool roving this would be interested in selling or trading? I would like to try my hand at making felted soaps for some ladies this Christmas and my LYS closed last month !! I went to 2 other yarn shops (too snobby for me to call local) and neither sells roving.

There is a TON of dyed roving on etsy... www.etsy.com

If you can't find any that suit you or have certain colors in mind I'd be glad to dye some for you.

Go to www.SpinningYarnsOnline.com. I sell dyed merino wool roving. I have a few colorways on my site right now and can custom dye anything that you would like.

Thanks,

What seller did you use? I was thinking of doing the same thing for a few people. I put in dyed roving on etsy and got so many hits that my head was spinning!

Seller was dbarrstuff - I haven't gotten my roving yet. She sent me an e-mail last week (before I left on vacation) saying it was going in the mail and she had included a little something extra for me. Upon return from vacation tonight I have an e-mail from her saying it got returned to her for unsufficient postage and that she was putting it right back in the mail....Kinda sucks cause I have tomorrow off and was hoping to get them done...oh well. The price was GREAT
