This textured art batt has such nice colour combos. It reminds me of the Scottish coastline, full of dizzying greens, breathtaking blues and the deliciously rich, earthy browns.
It’s comprised of 3 layers, each created with the same fibres you see on the top: very soft merino wool as base, bamboo and silk for extra shine, silk noil for texture. Layering the batt ensures you’ll get interesting combinations throughout, no matter how you choose to spin or felt it.
My favourite way to spin this type of art batt is core-spinning, whereby you use a commercial yarn as a core and wrap these fibres around it perpendicularly. Because this art batt is only slightly textured, you can also spin this in a more traditional way, using the silk noil bumps as extra added character.
This carded fibre batt is suited for spinning or wet felting. You can simply pull out sections lengthwise and spin, or peel back the layers to work each separately (these suggestions are also good for wet felting). The choice is yours.
You’ve 100g or 3.5 oz of squishy softness to play with.

Although all care has been taken to ensure colours show true, your monitor setting might differ from mine.
