The batts below contain hand-dyed merino wool, blue sparkle, white soysilk, cashmere, and silk. (I received an AMAZING package of fun fibers from TheGoodSheep and used several of them in these batts).
I just need to figure out the best way to photograph these new larger batts. The average weight I can pack onto my Supercard is about 2.5 oz., so it would take two batts to have enough fiber for a lace weight shawl or a pair of socks. I'm planning on carding up a huge palette of mix-and-match batts as well as slow color-transitioning batts for my new site.
Besides carding, I've been busy with the dye pots lately, and have recently embarked on a new fibery adventure- wool neps! I've seen them in batts before, and I love the confetti-like appearance they add to art yarns. Here's my "Halloween" colorway (I have two other colorways that will be exclusive to my new shop).
Speaking of Halloween, I need to get busy shopping or sewing costumes. This will be Ingrid's first one, and perhaps the only Halloween where I have total control over what she'll be, haha! I think she's going to be a little Yoda, if I can find or make just the right outfit.
