I absolutely adore abalone shell. I adore the iridescent colors and the way the shell shimmers. I tried to create a batt that had some of the same colors.
Turquoise merino is layered with green and purple bamboo. Angelina and firestar give this batt it's iridescence.
Contents: 23% merino, 67% bamboo, 10% nylon firestar and less than 1% angelina.
Thanks for looking!!! BGD
I love these vegan batts. I look (lurk) through the store frequently for each new colorway. Abalone was the first one that I marked as a favorite, but the last to buy. Silly me. The colors of the bamboo are bright, vibrant, and soft, and there is no lack of firestar/angelina for light catching sparkle. My experience with these batts is that they spin up quick and effortlessly. Each new strip of batt produces a length of yarn that is unique and beautiful.
Just as a warning (don't ask me how I know....) you may want to designate a towel to put on your lap while spinning this. Firsestar/angelina love to cling on to anything. This will help you corral the sparkle.

I try to pack my items with care but sometimes the post office is not gentle with packages. If your spindle arrives damaged, please let me know and I will see what I can do to send you a replacement part or fix your spindle.
If you discover a defect (which is not due to misuse or abuse) on one of my spindles within the first 60 days after the date of your purchase, please let me know. I will attempt to either repair or send replacement parts for your spindle.
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.
