These fun battlings feature farm fleeces in all their glory - Alpaca, Merino, and Corriedale, picked together to loosen the lock structure, and then carded just once for fluffy, open mini batts with subtle character and texture from the fleeces. This colorway will barber-pole beautifully in singles or plied yarns, swirling earth and sky together in a classic combination.

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.
