Corriedale Wool Roving - White

  • Corriedale Wool Roving - White


The Corriedale sheep is found on sheep farms all over New Zealand. Its wool has a clear even crimp and is smooth and easy to spin and felt. The sheep are well-cared for, sheared humanely and not mulesed. This beautiful all-purpose fiber is popular for both traditional wet felting as well as dry felting with a needle.

Leave unspun or spin into a fine to medium woollen, worsted or semi-worsted yarn. Corriedale will bulk after washing and has good elasticity. Yarn spun from this fiber is ideal for baby  wear, woven, knitted or crocheted garments. 27-30 micron, 4.25" staple length.

Comes in long ropey lengths, about 2 inches wide and 1 inch thick, referred to as sliver but known by many as roving. One ounce measures almost 2 yards in length.

Color Note:
This is an unbleached natural white. The color is cream when compared to a piece of white paper.

Shipping Note:
It can be expensive to ship an order with large amounts of fiber. If additional funds are required, we will contact you.

  1. Wonderful wool! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2015

    My sister bought several small bundles of various colors and a larger bundle of this white to use in our kids art camps we held this summer. This white was beautiful to see, touch, and felt with! Thank you so much! We had several parents ask where we got our supplies, and I was MORE than happy to send them your way!

  2. So Soft! 5 Star Review

    I have used this as stuffing for small baby toys but it's definitely much nicer quality to use for wet felting. So soft and so nice to work with.

  3. AWESOME! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th May 2014

    I'm new to needlefelting. Had tried some other roving and found it rough. But this is Heaven! I can pull out sections with ease, layer colors to create shadows, add wool yarn for ridges. I love the fact this is humanely collected and a renewable resource is an added bonus. The results are surprisingly wonderful. I've been looking for an alternative sculpture medium since I can no longer do woodcarving or work in plaster. Needlefelting is similar to working in clay without all the mess. Thank you for providing such an incredible material. Look forward to trying some different types!
