Rolags are wonderful because they are completely ready-to-spin. They are prepared by combing different fibres together and then drafted as they are rolled. This makes rolags ideal for practicing long-draw (if you want) and eliminates any fibre preparation you would have to do with other types of spinning fibre (like braids or locks).

About this Colourway:
It was fun to make a yellow themed tweedy-style rolag set with what I had on hand. It ended up being part sunshine and part gold, and it reminded me of the sneaky little ball in Quidditch (Harry Potter) that flies around trying to not get caught. Just like the Snitch, it will surprise you and keep you on your toes!
Sometimes there just isn't enough of something to make a large run of it, sometimes you get to the end of a run of colour and you end up with bits and pieces left over. We collect these bits and pieces, put them together and come up with something beautiful. Each of these rolags have complimentary nepps for a tweed effect, and some pops of colour add-ins. They are full of surprises, layered and drafted and rolled into little magic wands of fibre.
*Note! Because this is a zero-waste product, it's super limited edition and can not be repeated*
What is Botany Lap Waste? All this gorgeous fibre comes from a British mill and it's a mixture of dyed tops, dyed fleeces, natural tops and end of runs on the blending machines. I love using this because I love taking something that might be unwanted or unused, and giving it a new life and some love. And anything we can do to reduce waste is a-okay with me!
