What To Do With Bernat Roving Yarn
For those who enjoy Roving Yarn, Bernat Roving is one of the most economical choices on today's market. I just looked up what Roving Yarn actually is. I know it's a type of yarn but unsure what the meaning really is.
Roving is a thick yarn that has a small twist on the yarn. It is one strand, not several plies like typical yarn. Because it's slightly twisted, the yarn doesn't compact down into plies and remains bulky in look and feel. It gives the appearance of authentic yarn of 'olden days' which is desirable by a select group of crocheters and knitters.
