I just love the way these Daydream art batts turned out! I made them out of soft merino wool along with a little teal green bamboo and some multi-colored pulled silk, and of course I added a bit of angelina to make them shimmer. They feel very smooth and silky.
These would work well for spinning or for felting. If you are planning to felt them, there is 83% feltable material, so they should felt just fine. I think they would be gorgeous in a nuno felting project.

I also have this colorway available as a kit, including yarn I spun and a wonderful tam hat pattern from Ambur Hsaio of Jaguar Moon Studios. The last photo shows the hat, and the kit is available here.
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.
Happy fiber artistry!
