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.
The last photo shows some yarn I spun from this colorway.

You can choose whether you would like sparkle in your art batts or not. If you choose sparkle, I will include sparkly Angelina and/or firestar that will coordinate best with the colors.
