I ordered Polwarth, aran weight, from Rovings. It took awhile to get from Canada to Indiana so I haven't even started my project yet. Tbe yarn is a natural dark brown that will be perfect for my thrummed mittens. The little crunch in the Polwarth will come in handy for grabbing onto the thrums.

I have Polwarth luxury blend fiber from Spirit Trail and Polwarth fiber from Sweet Georgia (that was my July club shipment) but haven't spun them yet. The luxury blend is beautiful, I might have to wait until my spinning improves to do it justice -- it would make a great cowl, like the Yarn Harlot's Pretty Thing.
