Hand painted roving
Man this roving is soft. I bought it off eBay from this seller. It's a blend of merino, targhee and ramboulet and takes dye really well.
I dyed it with kool aid (Lemon Lime & Arctic Green Apple) and Wilton's icing gel dye (Copper) using the tutorials found on Knitty and Craftster. I also spun some plain white to be dyed as yarn. I'm going to see what I like better, dyed in the roving or dyed in the yarn.
