These brilliant emerald-colored batts were born of a gift from a friend - precious hand-dyed MCN (that's Merino/Cashmere/Nylon) scraps from a first weaving project. Not wanting the scraps to go to waste, she kindly sent them to me, destined for incorporation into an art batt. Thus this series of 4 glimmering green beauties were created, inspired by the shades in her yarn.
MCN Yarn Scraps
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.
