This listing is for our gorgeous, vibrant Purple Mountains rolags. These rolags are made with a luscious blend of polwarth/silk 60/40, and are incredibly soft and decadent.
This fiber will felt (you can even wet felt them into dreadlocks!), so please let us know if you prefer a superwash version and we can do that at no extra charge instead. Please use the dropdown menu to select your quantity (by default it is 1oz).
We encourage you to look through all three photos, as this colorway is a bit hard to properly capture in a photo. The last photo shows this colorway of rolags with the matching teeswater locks (sold separately).
ATTENTION: This colorway is treated with a dye fixative and rinsed thoroughly. Slight bleeding is still possible and is totally normal (the color should not lighten even if excess dye washes out). We recommend that you wash it by hand in cold water.
Punis and rolags are a very fun way to spin fiber. They are easier to hold onto than big art batts and all of the drafting work has already been done for you. They may look confusing, but this is actually my favorite way to spin fiber!
Joining them together is as simple as touching it to the fiber as it spins, and this way of spinning creates predictable, gorgeous variations in your hand spun yarn. If you prefer to felt, feel free! It will work for that too.
