Three cheers for {Butterbeer}! Delightfully frothy, bringer of good cheer, enjoyed by young wizarding students everywhere. Part of the Limited-Edition "Cosy up with Classy Squid" line for Winter 2016-2017!

Featuring some bouncy Corriedale dyed the most brilliant orange, warm camel down and Tussah silk, fluffy white cotton (for the foam, of course), true British BFL, and a gorgeous white Romeldale fleece from a sheep named...wait for it... Lupin. Meant to be, it was. 

I love creating heathers out of high contrast ingredients, rather than starting with the exact shade I want in the final product - it takes more blending passes, but creates such a rich and multi-faceted end result. Sure to bring happiness wherever it is spun, snag your own limited-edition Butterbeer batt today!

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.
