Inspired by the our neighbor's lovely irises and the coming of spring, I created these purple iris art batts. It's amazing how many colors are actually in purple irises, isn't it? There are deep purple, lilac, soft yellow, white, bronze, gold, and the green stem and leaves. I used merino as well as muga silk and bamboo, and then I added just a bit of angelina for some shimmer.
The last photos show this art batt as well as both the handspun and commercially spun hand-dyed versions of the same colorway I have made.

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.
