Imagine spending a lovely day in the dappled sunshine of a forest near Flagstaff. As you speed through a forest path on your sled, you notice the green of the pine trees, the rich brown of their trunks, the white of the snow beneath you, and the lavender cast of shadows beneath the trees. Just such a day inspired me to make these art batts.
These have amazing texture between the soft merino, the smooth silk, the bouncy polwarth, the soft alpaca, and the crinkly, curly kid mohair locks. These will be so much fun to spin as a true art yarn and then knit or weave into something wonderful. Whatever you decide to make with these art batts, they're sure to create quite a stir!

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.
