Based on my favorite novel, Patricia Mckillip's Riddle Master Trilogy, and in particular the character of Har, the Wolf King of Osterland: Ancient, stern, with ice-blue eyes, a penchant for riddle games, and gifts of mind-reading and shape-shifting (most often into a great wolf or a wild vesta, a mythical reindeer-like creature with purple eyes, and crescent-shaped horns and hooves of gold).
This batt is carded just once to maintain alignment of colors and texture. Wild, wolf-like neutrals are kissed with purple noil, purple and gold silk, and ice-blue angelina. This would make a highly unique, earthy yarn and would be brilliant for felting.
Shades of natural Shetland wool
Gotland lamb's wool
Mulberry and Tussah silk
Ice blue angelina
This listing is for a single limited-edition batt weighing approximately 2 oz.
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 & 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.
