Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Ch. 54 - A little box, the colour of heartache
My interpretation of the colour of The Gentleman's little box, somewhere between mauve and purple, covered in cobwebs of old lace. Blended twice from beautiful sheepy fleeces, natural silks, and dyed Polwarth wool - with a touch of mysterious sparkle.

Classy Squid Fiber Co. batts are designed to provide a wonderful spinning experience, but would also be gorgeous if used for felted designs or as accents in weaving. My Organic Polwarth wool is sourced from the Falkland Islands, UK, where the sheep are raised free of pesticides & chemicals in a pristine environment. Fibers are hand-dyed by me, Amanda, in my smoke-free, pet-free studio using professional grade acid dyes. I do my utmost to run my dyeing studio in an environmentally-friendly manner.
To care for your creations and avoid felting, hand-wash your items in warm (not hot) water with a mild wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak, without agitation, and allow to air-dry.
