The Wraps per Inch Gauge measures the thickness of your yarn. It's made from 3mm Baltic birch plywood. It is laser cut and engraved. It has 1/16" lined ruler and is approximately 3" tall by 2" wide. Natural wood will have some variation in it.

4 ounces of domestic blend wool roving, domestic 56s Wool Top, 29.5 micron. The wool is collected from Fleece State area of U.S. wool production, predominantly black face meat sheep. The area is all the states east of the Mississippi and any state west of it that is not split by the Continental Divide. The soil generally makes it difficult to get the whitest fiber.    I use this roving on a regular basis, it is what I used when I learned how to spin. I also use it when teaching beginners, as it has a longer staple length (about 4 to 4 1/2") and drafts well. I have also created a beginner spinning tutorial to help get you started
