Imagine the warmth and richness of a Renaissance festival, and you'll get the feel of this wonderful new colorway. It is made of soft merino, silky bamboo, royal muga silk, sari silk, and the wonderful texture of extra-soft kid mohair locks along with a bit of shimmer in the form of both firestar and angelina.
If you are a felter, I wouldn't recommend these batts since the total percentage of feltable materials is only 68%. If you're a spinner like I am, throw caution to the wind and have a blast spinning all these different soft textures. It would make a wonderful corespun, supercoil, thick and thin, or 2-ply yarn.

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. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
