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 sari silk, and of course I added a bit of angelina to make them shimmer. They feel very smooth and silky. The colors of sari silk vary each time I make these.
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.
The last two photos show the yarn I spun using these and then a tam hat made by Ambur Hsaio of Jaguar Moon Studio. She made the pattern as well.

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.
