yep - on Etsy, this team is the Fiber Artists [Street Team] - and we work with, well, FIBER!
Joining this group, I've been introduced to new terms I was not familiar with - - one being ROVING. I heard it mentioned a lot and grew to learn what it is.
ROVING is created when wool has been washed and combed and carded. It looks all soft and fluffy and just makes you want to touch it! Roving is what you spin on a spinning wheel (or other method) to make your yarn. Many times roving will be dyed beautiful colours too!
I'm not a spinner. I doubt I'll ever be a spinner. But I do like the look of roving!
