Inspired by the world of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, these night-deep batts shimmer with a multi-reflective iridescence, meant to evoke the deep black, but shiningly-colorful, depths of raven feathers. Triple-carded black fleeces and multi-colored silks are blended to a heathery perfection, which becomes even smoother when spun. The mini-skein I spun from this blend (in the last two photos) simply glows!

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 & Falkland wools are 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.
