Post by Big Muddy rancher » Sun Apr 01, 2018 8:16 pm

Jody anyways :D I was looking around to price wool rovings. I bought a custom saddle blanket at a benefit auction last night and the lady uses Wool Rovings to make them.Just checking out the prices of the wool.

Any ideas to check out?

Thanks

I bet that is a dandy blanket. I don't know what wool rovings are. Is the blanket 100% wool? Pictures please!
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

I have a four blankets made of wool rovings.(long thick strands of wool) The core, or base for two are woven thru burlap, the others thru a plastic mesh, like plastic snowfence. I definitely prefer the burlap ones, however the plastic has held up remarkably well, and has not poked thru as I thought it might. Easily washed in cold water and rinsed with cold what hose. BMR what is the core on yours? :cboy:
