Antique Romance ™
1 Batt - 2.0 ounces
This is a slighly textured batt - the silk noil and camel down add a bit of texture but not too much.
This beautifully romantic batt contains muted reds, fawns and an overall sepia effect which led me to name it Antique Romance.
This batt is super lofty and squishy. This is a textured batt and is next to skin soft. It was dyed by me using professional acid dyes. All dyes were exhausted prior to making the batt. Thoroughly blended. I actually Mish-Mashed™ it up as it was going into the drum carder so there is a mix of everything throughout the batt. I ran the mix of fiber through the drum carder twice to make it nice and smooth and incorporate everything.
This batt is OH SO soft!!!
Approx fiber % -
- Baby alpaca (55%) - from my own herd
- Merino (15%)
- Silk (10%)
- Silk Noil (5%)
- Camel Down (5%)
- Sparkle (10%) - Firestar
I weigh my fiber before going into the drum carder to get the approx percentages.
If you don't know how to spin - but love the batt - convo me for pricing on spinning this batt.
***This is one of my reproducible colorways - so if you would different fiber like alpaca, merino, etc etc - please convo me.
*** If you would like this without sparkle - please convo me.
The pictures are representative of the batts you will receive. I try to portray accurate color representation of my products but each computer/monitor is different.
While every effort is made to remove all the VM from my alpaca fiber, since I process it by hand, there is a chance that a stray piece may have been missed, but should fall out while spinning. A noil/nep here or there is possible as well.
