These art batts were inspired by cherry trees in full bloom. Isn't it amazing how many colors are really in something when you look closely? These contain white, red, and several shades of pink for the blossoms; spring green for the leaf buds; beige and light gray for the branches; and a touch of gold for the tips of the buds.
The materials are a wonderful combination of soft, luxury fibers. I listed them below. I'm including a bit of mint fiber for the first time, which is naturally antibacterial.

Each art batt is shipped to you in a lovely organza drawstring bag to prevent it from getting dusty until you are ready to use it. It also has a label to let you know what it's made of for future reference. This makes a great presentation if you are giving art batts as a gift to your favorite spinner or felter as well.
MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
