Eowyn's Mantle was inspired by Eowyn, the shield-maiden in The Lord of the Rings. The mantle was given to her for her wedding by her betrothed and is described as "a great blue mantle of the colour of deep summer-night, and it was set with silver stars about hem and throat." (The Return of the King)
I used deep blue merino for these art batts and added white organic polwarth, extra soft white merino, white mulberry silk, silver alpaca, and soft gold tussah silk as well as some sparkly gold angelina. These are wonderfully soft and springy and would be wonderful for both spinning and felting.

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.

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.
