I was looking at photos of a distant nebula from the Hubble Space Telescope, and the colors were so amazing and beautiful and varied. Of course, me being me, my first thought was how I could design an art batt to share with you from the colors in the photo! :-)
These art batts contain soft merino, bamboo, baby alpaca, kid mohair locks, and some sparkly angelina and firestar.
The colors include several shades of blue and green as well as lavender, eggplant, white, light brown, dark brown, and even pink. Every one was in the nebula, and I tried to replicate the proportions of colors as well.
Most of the fibers are in multiple layers of thin stripes throughout the batts, but I kept all the locks on the top.
I finished spinning two of these art batts today. The last photo shows the yarn I made.
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.
