From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A rolag prepared using handcarders.

A rolag is a roll of fibre generally used to spin woollen yarn. A rolag is created by first carding the fibre, using handcards, and then by gently rolling the fibre off the cards. If properly prepared, a rolag will be uniform in width, distributing the fibres evenly.[1]

Animal fibres have traditionally been used to create rolags, but today's spinners use many different fibre materials, including manufactured and [[ |plant fibres]].
