{Champagne} - sparkling and bubbly, dry and just a tad sweet, for ringing in celebrations of all kinds. Part of the Limited-Edition "Cosy up with Classy Squid" line for Winter 2016-2017!

These batts are delightfully fluffy and full of loft, carded from rare-breed California Red fleece. This is a beautiful curly wool, silky, yet bouncy, with low lanolin content and a smooth hand. I would liken it most to a low-micron BFL, but less dense. Blended together with muga silk, gold sparkle, and a new type of silk preparation called comber's noil (tweedy effect like regular silk noil, but much softer, more like cobwebs, and not bumpy), with just a touch of Organic Polwarth combed top for stability; carded twice for a smooth and effortless spin. This wool will create bouncy yet sleek yarns with excellent memory and resilience.

Weight: 2oz

Ingredients:

  • California Red fleece, scoured but undyed
  • Muga Silk
  • Organic Polwarth
  • Comber's Silk Noil
  • Crimped-cut gold angelina 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.
