Item details

This listing is for 1 ounce loosely hand dyed BFL locks. They are 4-6" un-stretched. I hand dyed the locks in a mix of hot pink and berry. Purple and reds found their way thru the mix of both of the dyes. Some of the locks are separated some are loosely clumped together. Separating the locks is easy - simply pull from the tip towards the shorn end. Separating them this way will help maintain the integrity of the lock structure. They are divine to spin from the cloud or tail spin and/or included in batts. The locks are perfect for hand spinning and many crafts! Great for felting projects!

The locks you will receive are the locks in the photos. Ready to ship! I try to capture as best I can the colors with my camera, but please keep in mind that colors may very slightly.

Please ask for a shipping quote for any orders outside my shipping profiles. I refund any shipping fees paid over $1.00 to you.

All of my items are created in a clean, smoke free environment. And all of my items have allergens.

**************************************
The inside story!
I include this as my disclaimer for those that might be unsatisfied with the locks:
You can expect to find some vm (vegetative matter from the field) in these locks. These locks have been washed and dyed by hand, with minimal handling to maintain lock formation. I pick out and shake out as much as I can while processing them and what is left should mostly all fall out with spinning or handling or can be removed if you find any. You will need to remove it if you see it. Please understand this will be expected of you if you purchase these locks.

If you are looking for locks with absolutely NO vm then please, don't buy these.

I find them delightfully clean when I receive them and then I wash them and rinse them and dye them and rinse them again, in small batches and do my best to remove any I see during that process. I've had quite a bit of experience with different locks from different farms. And at this point in my fiber journey - I will only use my time to wash and dye locks with minimal field matter. So please, rest assured, you are receiving top quality product from a US farm.

The supplier works on cleaning the locks from the moment the sheep are sheared. And by the time I work them over..they have been coddled and well loved from when they are free for us to use and I can get them to you. I wouldn't ever send you something I wouldn't be willing to use myself.

If you find you are unsatisfied with the vm in your locks, please contact me and I will replace them or you can return them and I'll refund you your money immediately. Please just give me a chance to make you happy before you leave negative feedback for locks. Vegetative matter in locks is in the nature of the beast so to speak. It's like a top on a carrot, you can't get one without the other.

Thank you for reading about my locks. If you've read this far and would like to view a short, 5 minute video I made showing how I needle felt locks into little flowers, (like the flowers in the photo) join my facebook group The Fiber Faerie and Friends to view it.
Please ask me if you have any questions. :)
