{Mexican Hot Chocolate} - deep, rich, and spiced, topped with loads of mini-marshmallows (the best kind). Part of the Limited-Edition "Cosy up with Classy Squid" line for Winter 2016-2017! This luscious batt started with the most beautiful Romeldale fleece from my favorite shepherd, in Michigan. So soft you can barely feel it, with a rich, deep, heathered brown - perfect for any kind of chocolate representation! To this was added a gorgeous, spicy tweed made from silk and sparkle and everything nice, in rich shades of reds, plums, and oranges. All of this is blended together twice for smoothness, and then topped with layers of delightful cotton nepps (a new ingredient at CSFC!) for a mini-marshmallow finish! These cotton nepps are fantastic - they are soft and disappear between your fingers while drafting, visible but not felt in the resulting yarns. If you've been turned off before by the bumpiness of silk noil, you have to give these a try!

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.
