Wool roving is produced during the process of making spun yarn from wool fleece, raw cotton, or other fibres. Their main use is as fibre prepared for spinning, but they may also be used for specialised kinds of knitting or other textile arts. Roving looks like bright, fluffy clouds of wool which makes them a popular choice for craft projects that resemble animals or fairies. For this blog post, we have compiled a list of some of our favourite DIYs that make use of wool roving.
