This is a vibrant colored 2 oz. batt. The base is a hand dyed deep purple alpaca with sparkles of angelina, from our Champion boy Dillinger. It is layered with hand dyed bamboo. This enables the spinner to add in the bamboo as they visualize their dance. The weight is 20% bamboo 80% alpaca. I used professional color fast dyes in the small batch method. This has been in a dog friendly, smoke free home. All of our proceeds go towards the care of our Alpaca herd in SW Ohio. Thank you for looking. Use code FREESHIP for a purchase of $25
This is beautiful and so so soft! Just to be clear, this batt is layered kind of like a cake with fluffy purple alpaca base and the silky , bright bamboo layered over the top with slight blending into the lower alpaca. This has some pros and cons- it requires some work to get a more consistent yarn spun as the different layers are drafted/pulled into the working yarn at different rates and eases. But if you want it to be varied it is easy to pick and choose what goes when. A little goes a long ways due to the light and fluffy fibers- I felt a 2 oz batt was huge compared to what I am used to! I also used some of this to make thrums for mittens and slippers with absolutely beautiful and ridiculously soft results! It just takes a bit extra work to roll the centers with the fine fibers used. Very happy customer here! Fast shipping.
