I’ve started working on a new product line for the business: Mixed fiber batts for spinning.  These are fluffy bundles of wool and silk, ready to be spun into yarn.

For those who don’t spin, batts are made by taking fiber and running it through a drum carder, which makes the fibers parallel and airy.  By putting mixed fibers on in layers, you can get these fabulous blends which will spin into equally fabulous yarn.  I like these lighly carded mixed fiber batts, which will make yarn that varies from inch to inch, both in fiber mix and color.  In the one above, the yellow and orange is merino wool, and the white is Tussah silk.
This and more, now up in my online store!
