Interested in our sheep but need delivery? 
 We just finished our annual cross county delivery trip, so that's done for the year but we'll likely make another trip next summer. 
We have a trip to CA planned for late October and will consider delivering to other neighboring states depending on sales.  Call or e-mail for more details.

Directions

Wool Roving*

*Roving is a continuous strip of washed, carded fiber which is ready to spin into yarn. 

We currently have several colors of Jacob and Navajo-Churro roving available, along with white Border Leicester/Navajo-Churro cross roving.  Our roving is priced at $2.50 per oz. (plus postage) and is sold in bumps that weigh approx. 8 oz each.  See below for more information on each type of roving, along with quantities, prices and photos of the colors available.  For more information contact us at: karen@bideaweefarm.com

Jacob Wool Roving

Jacob sheep grow a medium grade wool (24-33 microns, Bradford count 44-56s, demi-luster), with an open character, a soft springy handle and little or no kemp, or britchyness. When the colors from one fleece are separated it can yield three colors - creamy white, brown/grey and brown/black. Our Jacobs are sheared once a year so staple lengths for our fleeces and roving range from 3" - 7".  Note: this batch of Jacob roving was made using lamb fleeces so it is quite soft and has a nice luster.

Navajo-Churro Wool Roving

Navajo-Churro wool comes in a wide range of natural colors (for a list of Navajo-Churro colors & patterns click here), is classified as coarse and is composed of three distinct types of fiber: 1) Inner Coat: wool fibers ranging from 10-35 microns, comprising 80% of the fleece, 2) Outer Coat: hair fibers measuring 35+ microns, comprising 10-20% of the fleece, 3) Kemp: short opaque fibers of 65+ microns, not to exceed 5% of the fleece. The fleece is open with no defined crimp and should be lustrous with a silky hand. It is high yielding with a low grease content.  Navajo-Churro sheep can grow 8" to 12" inches of wool a year (up to 1" per month).  At bide a wee farm we shear our Churros twice a year so staple lengths on our fleeces/roving range from 4" to 6".

Border Leicester/Navajo-Churro Cross Wool Roving

Our Border Leicester/Navajo-Churro cross roving combines the luster of the Border Leicester with the durability of the Navajo-Churro.  It has a good shine and a nice hand and is suitable for weaving and for knitting or crocheting outer garments.
