The Planets was inspired by Holst's orchestral suite. My son took NASA photos of each of the 8 planets (poor Pluto) and used their colors to create these art batts.
They have merino, bamboo, baby alpaca, mint fiber (naturally antimicrobial), camel down, and sparkly angelina. They are love and soft.
These would be great to spin. Since they only have 69% feltable fibers, I would recommend felting them with more wool if you choose to go that route.BATT FACTS

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.
