I have produced this gradient set of batts from fleeces local to my home in rural Staffordshire. The process has involved:- skirting, washing/brushing, carding ,dyeing and finally blending the colours to give a gradual double colour change from purple, through pink to orange. Picture No 6 Shows the Baby Alpaca fleece and the Texel (Sheep) fleece from which these batts have been made. This is a truly hand made product waiting for the right person to make something very special with it.Have fun! Suitable for spinning and felting.
Fibres.....70% wool (Texel) from Hixon Staffs. A bouncy robust fibre. 30% Baby Alpaca. "Des'" First shearing from a flock in Moddershall. Unbelievably soft and delicate. When blended they make a lovely practical fibre.
Mass..... 9 batts:- Purple and Orange are 15g each. The other 7 batts are 10g each. Total is 100g.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to "unhappy experiences" with Poste Italiane, I no longer send shawls to Italy using this postal service. I will ship items to customers in Italy, however I will use a courier service eg DHL and charge accordingly. I thank you for your understanding in this matter. Susan
