Our roving drafts easily and is great for beginning spinners.  It is also a
favorite with needle felters.  Our white romney roving is available again
thank to Fitch Fibers in Bozrah.  We have acquired some creamy white
roving that isn't well suited to spinning as it doesn't draw nicely so it is
being sold as Craft Roving.
All roving is sold cost plus shipping - by the ball or in 2 oz increments.
Craft Roving in the ball is $1.25/ounce or/in 2 oz. increments at $4/2oz .   
Romney Roving is $1.50/oz in the ball or in 2oz increments is $5/2 oz.
increment .  A ball of roving averages between .75 lb and 1lb.  
Just in! Our own Romney yarn in white and gray.  Custom
spun for us in a two ply worsted weight at $18/skein. We
stilll have a dark gray 2 ply Connecticut Grown Yarn with
skeins that average around 4 ounces at $12/skein.  We
sometimes have Handspun yarn which is $5/oz..

The Connecticut Blanket Project is a cooperative project for members of the Connecticut Sheep Breeders Association, Inc..   
These aren't your old scratchy Army or Navy blankets, rather they are soft, warm blankets made each year from wool that is
consigned by Association members. The wool is collected in early June, then delivered to the mill where it is washed, carded,
and spun into yarn that is then woven into blankets.  The blankets are usually finished and delivered by late fall.  The pattern
design on the blanket changes each year and the shade of gray varies depending on the quantity of dark fleeces
consigned.    We order King, Queen & Long Throw sizes as they are the most popular, however we can obtain other sizes
from producers that ordered them.  The long throw is great for covering up while watching television or  another favorite use,
throwing over the half of the bed of the person who always seems to be colder at night! There are about 325 blankets made
each year and they all come with a numbered certificate that lists the Connecticut farms who made the blanket possible..

2014, the Series 12, was the twelveth year of the Connecticut Blanket project and we
chose the Split Buffalo Plaid.  Seen here below on the right is a Queen in that pattern.  
New that year we also decided to try them in a scarf size and the 2015 Series 13 is a
smaller version of the Split Buffalo Plaid shown on the left.
THE 2016 CONNECTICUT BLANKETS ARE HERE!
An absolutely beautiful herringbone with white stripes, the Connecticut Blanket Project Committee chose to give this special blanket
a name.  Laura "Jo" Judd was one of the originators of the Project and was in charge of it until she passed away a few years
ago,She always said that someday we should make a herringbone weave blanket and with this blanket someday is here.  We chose
to honor Jo and the farm where she and her husband Kirby raised a family and tended their flock of sheep for many years.
Here is the Winterbrook.
