These smooth, gradient batts were inspired by the winning entry into the #ClassySquidInspiredBatt Instagram contest. Golden hues transition smoothly into the colors of sunset, finally fading into deep midnight. Each batt is a fluid gradient from one color to the next. Chain-ply, pair with a coordinating solid, core-spin, thread-ply - anything you create with these batts will be stunning!
Ten different colors of wool, silk, firestar, and angelina are first blended individually for smoothness, and then finally measured out and blended together to create a smooth gradient batt. Each shade just slightly overlaps the next, and the spinning possibilities are endless.
Classy Squid Fiber Co. fibers 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 & Falkland wools are 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.
