SLEDDING IN FLAGSTAFF - Soft, Textured Chunky Art Batts to Spin Made of Merino, Superwash Bluefaced Leicester, Silk, Kid Mohair Locks


Only 2 left in stock

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 BFL, 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!

Please note, these will NOT FELT WELL as they are made of 30% superwash BFL and 15% silk. They could, however, be used as felting embellishments. Just don't expect them to felt well on their own.

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. Just tell me which you would prefer.

Happy fiber artistry!
