Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places. My daughter had a Parisian tea tray out last night. I've seen it a hundred times, but this time I HAD to stop what I was doing and make an art batt using the colors in the tea tray and the feel of Paris. It's full of soft colors and strong textures. Not only would this be a blast to spin, but it would be absolutely gorgeous felted!
I had the song "I Love Paris in the Springtime" the whole time I was carding these.
Please note that there is a bit of VM in the kid mohair locks. They have been washed well, but there's no way to get out the last of the VM without destroying the lock formation. It flecks out very easily as you spin though.BATT FACTS

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.
