Item details

This is a vegan version of my popular Seashells batt. I decided to do some "vegan" batts after a customer with allergies asked if I could do some batts without animal fibers. This batt contains no animal fibers, however, it has been carded on a drum carder which is also used to process animal fibers. I clean my carder after each style of batt.

I'm not sure what it is about this batt that reminds me of seashells. Perhaps the aqua blue of the ocean, the white of the sand and the coral insides of seashells. This batt has blue, peach, coral, and aqua bamboo and some honey colored soy silk as well. Firestar and angelina capture the sparkle of the sea and sand while you are searching for your shells.

Contents: 80% bamboo, 10% soy silk, 10% nylon firestar and less than 1% angelina.

4 oz.

Thanks for looking!!! BGD

I'm spinning this batt right now. I have done 2 oz, making a two play yarn and it is so soft and gorgeous. The colors mellowed looking much like the inside of a shell. The bamboo and soy silk create a smooth spinning yarn that is so easy to spin. You will need a towel on your lap as the angelina and firestar like to hang on to their surroundings, but this is the only concern about handling the batt. The vegan batts are worth your time and the results are fabulous!

Information on my spindles:

I get a lot of questions about whether or not my spindles will break. If they are dropped hard enough, some of them will definitely break.

For the stone and glass spindles, to be safe, you should only spin over carpet. I have not had a problem with the stone or glass on hardwood, but if dropped from high enough, it is possible they may break.

My spindles spin smoothly, however they have relatively small whorls and most are not rim weighted (although the cut of some of the stones, resin and glass do make the spindle more rim weighted). This means that you may have to start the spindle respinning for each length you spin before you wind on. I generally can spin to the floor on most of them without restarting, but a lot depends upon how fast you draft and how well prepared your fiber is. Most of my spindles spin very fast.

I am happy to do custom orders for both fiber and spindles.

Spindles: I have a lot of choices for spindles: stone, glass, shell, and resin. I would be happy to try to create a spindle for you.

Fiber: If I have the materials, I am happy to try to create a batt to your specifications. I use glitz in a lot of my batts, but I am happy to card one for you without the glitz, if you prefer.
