1 BATT - 2.0 ounces - Red Drone Dalek™
8 gram (approx 1/4 oz) sample
For spinning or felting
This colorway originally appeared in the Phat Fiber Feb 2014 Sampler Box - "Geekery". It's been a shop regular ever since.
This batt is super lofty and squishy and super sparkly too. This is a smooth batt. There is some texture in the Soffsilk™, but very slight. If you haven't worked with Soffsilk™ before it is premium carded super soft silk waste and it is luxurious! The alpaca in the batt is from my own herd, Alma Park Alpacas™. 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 inspired by the Red Drone Daleks from Dr. Who. If you are a Dr. Who fan - you know this species of aliens.
Red, Black, Grey, White
Next to skin OH SO soft and a dream to spin!!!

I weigh my fiber before going into the drum carder to get the approx percentages.

The pictures are representative of the batts you will receive.
Since the alpaca in this batt is from my own alpacas, some amount of VM may be present which should fall out when spinning. A noil here and there is also possible.
