    Roving is a pencil thick single ply yarn. There is a slight twist set in the fibre itself during processing. This means it can be used just like any other yarn, or can be untwisted to create interesting effects. 


    One great technique is to knit or crochet a scarf from the roving, then felt it slighty to make it a bit more snuggly. Of course, you have to allow for a slight shrinkage when making your scarf, but its definitley worth it!Rovings can also be used for art yarn spinning as a core thread for really chunky yarns that are popular when spun on the Ashford country spinner.
