The Planets was inspired by Holst's orchestral suite. My son took NASA photos of each of the 8 planets (poor Pluto) and used their colors to create these art batts.
They have merino, bamboo, baby alpaca, eri silk, mint fiber (naturally antimicrobial), camel down, and sparkly angelina. They are love and soft.
These would be great to spin. Since they only have 69% feltable fibers, I would recommend felting them with more wool if you choose to go that route.BATT FACTS

Please allow 3 business days for me to make these art batts once you order them.
You can choose whether you would like sparkle in your art batts or not. If you choose sparkle, I will include sparkly Angelina and/or firestar that will coordinate best with the colors. If you choose no sparkle, I will not include any even if it is listed in the original contents.
