{Raktajino} - warm and spiced, ultra-caffeinated, known as some of the best coffee anywhere in the galaxy - Captain Sisko was utterly useless without it. Part of the Limited-Edition "Cosy up with Classy Squid" line for Winter 2016-2017!

Featuring a beautiful naturally-colored Corriedale/Romney/Rambouillet Ewe Fleece, along with a dash of sparkle, tussah silk, and spice, amped up with camel and yak downs for ultimate warmth - these batts will spin up into a gorgeous tweedy yarn. This fleece is soft but also quite sturdy due to the Romney characteristics, with a bold wavy crimp and the most beautiful heathered colors. While it's a bit difficult to determine what Raktajino should taste like, according to some corners of the internet it may have been a spiced beverage, similar to a coffee-based take on a chai; so soft and fluffy comber's silk noil in spicy shades have been blended throughout the fleece to add a dash of intrigue.

Weight: 2oz

Ingredients:

  • Corriedale/Romney/Rambouillet Ewe Fleece

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.
