Day 7 - The darker side of Rovings
Darker but no less beautiful! Our Archie rovings are made from Bluefaced Leicester and Masham wools, giving the yarn a dark marled base to begin with. This makes the shades of dye take a darker overtone compared to the Poppy roving, as the two different wools work with the dyes separately.
Our Archie roving colourways have been dyed using the same colours as our Poppy rovings, in the same techniques. Using identical methods really allows the unique properties of the wools to shine, as the difference in the resulting colourways is striking, yet complementary.
Toad Hall - With mustard and yellow overtones and a green hue, this yarn would be Mr Toad of Toad halls go to yarn. He could even make a pair of socks to match his trousers!
