Apple Orchard ™
**** RETIRED July 2016 - only samples remain***
**** This proved to be such a popular colorway, I am keeping it my shop as a reproducible colorway. Note: I also make this in a textured batt adding silk noil, alpaca noil and other goodies. Let me know what you would like at checkout. Also - if you would like this without firestar (sparkle) just let me know. ****
1 BATTs - 2.0 ounces
This batt is super lofty and squishy. This is a smooth batt. I layer my batts so there is a mixture of all the materials throughout with most of the sparkle on top.
This batt reminds me of a basketful of apples. It brings me back to apple picking, apple cider, cool crisp autumn days and holidays. I can feel myself in the warmth of a hand-knitted sweater as I type this.
The alpaca in the batt is from my own herd. It was dyed by me using professional acid dyes. All dyes were exhausted prior to making the batt.
Reds, Golden Apple Green, white
Approx Fiber % -
- Baby Alpaca - 50%
- Ultrafine Merino - 35%
- Milk Fiber - 10%
- Firestar - 5%
As I process my own alpaca, a piece of VM is possible which should fall out when spinning. A nep or noil is possible too.
I weigh my fiber before going into the drum carder to get the approx percentages.
Don't know how to spin - but love the batt - convo me for pricing on spinning this batt. Want more? Convo me for more! This is one of my reproducible batts - so I can make as much as you want.

I try to portray accurate color representation of my products but each computer/monitor is different.
