A-roving we will go
Hi, ho, the beadio - a-roving we will go!
If you feel you want to try felting, but are at a premium for space, and you want all the pretty colours, but have just discovered that the minimum quantities for buying roving - which - by the way - means unspun and untwisted wool - will yield about 6,972* beads and take up a sizable percentage of your storage space and still get you only one colour! - well - we have the solution for you! We have roving in bead-size quantities - by the half ounce, which should net you about 15 beads - depending entirely on the size that you are making - but you can see - it's still a much more reasonable quantity - which also makes it easier to smuggle into the house - in case that is a concern. "Hi Honey - just ignore this big bag of colourful wool - I'm, uh, adopting a sheep." Our significant-others are pretty patient people (they have to be), but what they don't know doesn't hurt them ... .
Anyway - this roving is restockable, and is in single colours (yes - we know the mixes were a bit confusing - but glorious!). You have to feel this wool to believe it - I'm not a fan of wool personally - I find it itchy - but this stuff is gorgeous - sooooo soft and not at all scratchy or weird.
And if you need the needles to felt with, check out our Felting Tools page too!
In other news ... a new stone - well - new to me and probably most of you too. This is Black Gold Amazonite. And no - it's doesn't contain oil. The black and blackish stones are Tourmaline matrix and the Gold refers to the Pyrite matrix (as in Fool's Gold.)
The end result is a stone that ranges from a soft, translucent green though creams to browns and blacks. Use the beads in random order, or sort them to shade from one colour to the next.
New this week on the bling-bling front, more Swarovski Pave balls, a new Be-charmed bead, and
some of the new colour Tangerine!
