If you would like me to make you a custom art batt, I would be happy to do so. Please be sure to read all the instructions below, and please note that I cannot offer refunds on custom art batts.

Here's how it works: Each art batt weighs 2 ounces, and you get to choose the colors and materials from the list below as well as how much of each material you want in tenths of ounces. Please make sure that the total weight comes to exactly 2 ounces. You'll be listing the materials and amounts in your note to seller.

Please list the materials and the amount you want of each one in your note like this:

EXAMPLE ART BATT #1
Red Merino 0.4 ounces
Bright Orange Merino 0.4 ounces
Bright Yellow Merino 0.2 ounces
White Mulberry Silk 0.2 ounces
Scarlet Red Bamboo 0.2 ounces
Light Yellow Merino 0.2
Undyed Organic Polwarth 0.2
Gold Muga Silk 0.2 ounces
Gold Angelina
Total Weight: 2 ounces

EXAMPLE ART BATT #2
Bright Yellow Merino 0.3 ounce
Purple Merino 0.8 ounces
Eggplant Merino 0.4 ounces
Purple Kid Mohair Locks 0.1 ounce
White Tussah Silk 0.1 ounces
Silver Gray Alpaca 0.2 ounces
Purple Bamboo 0.1 ounces
Purple Angelina
Total Weight: 2 ounces

If you are ordering multiple different art batts, please list the materials for each one separately as shown in the example above.

I will make the art batt based on your specifications and send it to you. If everything you ask for is in stock, I can make it within 2 business days. If I have run out of a particular fiber, I will contact you to see what you would like as a substitute. That won't happen often.

If you are planning to felt your art batt, please keep in mind that merino, Polwarth, camel down, and alpaca are all feltable. However, silk, bamboo, angelina, and firestar are not. I recommend choosing at least 1.5 ounces out of your 2 ounce batt from the feltable fibers if you want to be sure it will felt well.

If you will be spinning your art batt, just keep in mind that silk and bamboo are a little slippery to spin, so if you aren't used to spinning them, you might want to limit the two together to no more than about 0.6 ounces of your art batt.

PACKAGING
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.

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. If you would like one, just choose it when you check out. I'll include one per order, so if you're ordering more than one art batt, just pick the same one for all of them, and that's the one I'll include.
