I love the way this colorway turned out! I originally made it as hand-painted yarn, but then I decided to make a cowl that combined the fingering-weight yarn with bulky yarn that I spun from art batts just like these. I named it Anachronism because of the juxtaposition between the warm antique colors and the modern sparkle.
These art batts are made from all soft, luxury materials including merino wool, baby alpaca, and even camel down, which is about as soft as anything could ever be. I added a bit of gold angelina to make it sparkle.
Weight: 2 ounces
Contents: 84% merino wool, 10% baby alpaca, 5% camel down, and 1% angelina
Colors: Dusty rose, brown, eggplant, dark magenta, spring green, beige
Carding Style: Layers of thin stripes carded once
Uses: Spinning or Felting (99% feltable materials)
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.
