Vampire Skin ™ Smooth Batt
1 BATT - 2.0 ounces
This batt was inspired by The Twilight Saga Movie and Edward Cullen's skin sparkling in the sunlight like diamonds. His skin is a mix of pink and grey throughout the movie and super sparkly in the sun. This batt has pink, grey, a little white and plenty of sparkle (pink and white) throughout to make a super scrumptious yarn. I think (despite it's name) it would be wonderful for little (or big) girls!!!
This batt is super lofty and squishy and super sparkly too. This is a smooth batt. The alpaca in the batt is from my own herd, Alma Park Alpacas™. It was dyed by me using professional acid dyes. All dyes were exhausted prior to making the batt. All the different fibers are mixed all the way through. Instead of layering the fiber, 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.
Blended through and through with all the add-ins and sparkle throughout.
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.
