Item details

Botanically dyed in Upstate New York. I would consider this batt perfect for a semi-beginner and perhaps an intermediate spinner. The fibers are long, Masham, Romney and Alpaca, all very easy fibers to stretch easily without feeling like you'll overspin but Rose Fiber, Recycled Sari and Merino (all of which are a bit shorter) might make you pause just a little bit as a beginner.

This has been blended by hand pulling. I only choose botanicals that have lasting colors. As a conservationist my first love is nature and will never waste energy on a color that will fade by light and wash. I test my dyes out for a year before sending out into the world. I will never use acid dyes which are often toxic and caustic. Not good for your skin, our oceans and waterways and our land.

Batts
-2 oz each.

Created in a smoke free, pet friendly studio.

CARE

The time may come where you will need to do a soft launder because of changes in the environment or just age (ie. dust – hey, we all have it). The secret to washing wool is understanding the cause of shrinking. 1. Abrasion 2. Extreme temperature change. Wool is one of the mightiest fibers that can withstand a lot but let’s take it easy.

Gently introduce your woven piece into a tub bigger than the piece with a light detergent or none at all if you just want to rinse off dust. I love Eucalyn which cleans and adds lanolin (a natural oil found in wool), but if you don’t want to purchase this I have also found Dr. Bronner’s works really well. Try to avoid commercial laundry detergent as this has some pretty heavy ingredients. If you must raise the temperature do this slowly. Try not to agitate or scrub. Gentle swishing is great and soaking is also fine but try to avoid long periods. I did not dye this or have tested the strength of the dyes and would recommend keeping a watchful eye. Rinse evenly and lay flat on a couple towels underneath and below. Roll loosely to gently move the water out or lay flat and push down gently. Moving to a mesh screen to help circulate the air is best but if you don’t have one, changing with fresh dry towels works. Once it feels mostly dry you can hang again and let it continue to dry. Don’t be scared, but if you are, please contact me and I’ll help you be brave! I wash and boil and dye wool all day long I’ve become a brave pro!
