I love this Blue Faced Leicester, rainbow dyed roving that I purchased from Winderwood Farms (in my fiber links on the right) on eBay. He does an incredible job on his fibers and has different fibers. I just chose the Blue Faced Leicester because I had never spun it before and I heard many on the Aran list talking about its great properties. It is a good wool for a beginning spinner because it has some grab to it and does not fly out of your hand like Merino does for the inexperienced spinner. But it is still moderately soft. The one picture shows the end of the roving, which I had spread out to prepare for spinning.
