LOTHLORIEN - Luxury Art Batt for Spinning or Felting Made of Merino, Alpaca, Kid Mohair Locks, Muga Silk, Bamboo, and Angelina


Only 1 left in stock

Sometimes inspiration for a new art batt or yarn strikes, and everything else just has to stop. That's what happened when the idea for these art batts struck me this morning. I was thinking about the description of Lothlorien from The Fellowship of the Ring. It was a place at once ancient and new, beautiful and mournful, wild and civilized. That is what I tried to convey in these art batts.

They have several shades of green merino, gold and green kid mohair locks for texture, silky bronze bamboo and orangy brown merino, a bit of regal purple, soft gold muga silk, and the most incredibly soft undyed silver alpaca and silk mixture. I can't decide which is softer--the muga silk or the alpaca/silk mixture. I added a generous amount of gold angelina so the whole shimmers just like Lothlorien should.

Each batt is shipped to you in a lovely organza drawstring bag to prevent it from getting dusty or humid 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.

Also, as a token of my appreciation, I am including your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these are natural moth deterrents. If you would prefer not to have either one, just choose the no scent option instead.

Happy fiber artistry!
