A squishy carded wool batt, oatmeal-coloured from a Texel and Suffolk cross sheep.  It’s been twice carded for extra smoothness.

carefully hand processed and washed this fleece myself, from raw wool and created the 100g batts in my trusty carder.

The staple length on this fleece is 13-15cm, making it a perfect wool for felting or spinning, dyeing or to use as core wool.

This carded wool batt comes from a high-welfare British farm and the shepherdess cares deeply for her flock. Each animal has a name – this fibre came from Bandit.

Please be aware there might be a small amount of vegetable matter in each batt, despite my best efforts to clean it as thoroughly as possible – happy sheep play outdoors and can get messy!

  • Keep wool top/roving or art batts in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the fibre to avoid squishing it.
    Handle silk hankies with moisturised hands to avoid them sticking to your skin.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
