One fine spring morning, she awoke and cast about her studio for fiber to card, something to express the cheerful birdsong and sun streaming in through open windows. Pile after pile was rejected, corners were scavenged, until finally a mountain of wool and silk and sparkle had collected that perfectly fit the mood. In a frenzy the fiber artist divided the ingredients into 4 piles, each slightly different but altogether harmonious, and set to work. As time passed the room filled with glorious, eccentric batts, all inspired by the spring oozing in through the windows, warming the studio and bouncing shadows of hidden colors.
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.
