***My contribution to the Phat Fiber July 2013 Sampler Box - "Under the Sea" ***
1 BATT - 2.0 ounces - Sand & Sea™
For spinning or felting
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™.
This batt reminds me of the surf and sand at the Jersey Shore where I grew up. The blue, turquoise and purple is for the sea, the fawn(tan) is for the sand and the white silk and sparkle is for the sea foam and white puffy clouds on a perfect summer day.
Blue, purple, turquoise, white and fawn (tan)
Next to skin OH SO soft and a dream to spin!!! This combo of fibers would spin into a wonderful sock yarn or anything else you can imagine.
Approx Fiber % -

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 than what is listed? Convo me for more! This is now one of my reproducible batts - so I can make as much as you want.
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.
