{Mulled Wine} - warm, spiced, a brace against chilly days, a winter's evening curled up by the fire. Part of the Limited-Edition "Cosy up with Classy Squid" line for Winter 2016-2017!

Deep, dark, and incredibly, ridiculously red! These Mulled Wine batts begin with a gorgeous base of deep wine-colored Corriedale wool, with a dash of bright red BFL and natural brown Finn for a heathered effect. To this, a dash of tweed, angelina sparkle, and a final topcoat of silky, orange Leicester Longwool locks are added to complete the painterly blend. The tweedy base of this batt has been blended twice for a smooth spin, but the Leicester Longwool locks were added in gently in the final pass - draft them out if you choose, or let them swirl about with curly, textured tips.

Weight: 2oz

Ingredients:

  • Corriedale fleece
  • BFL and Finn tops
  • Tweed made from silk, Silk Noil, Comber's noil, Angelina, Firestar, and Mohair
  • Leicester Longwool locks
  • 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.
