Inspired by French cuisine, a spice-box of fiber in honor of Tour de Fleece!

This palette of colors features 6 subtle battlings in spicy shades of curry-yellow, lavender, herb green, saffron, nutmeg, and peppercorn. Each batt features a different farm fleece, and light toppings, carded twice for smooth spins. Spin each battling into a mini-skein for a multi-colored shawl, stripe them together in a single yarn for instant coordinating stripes, or chunk them up confetti-style for an explosion of color. The choice is yours!

Each kit is beautifully packaged in a sturdy white box, with an accompanying postcard of the inspiration image to inspire your projects.

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.
