The super long merino fleece included in these batts was from a fine wool merino, who being bored of farm life wandered off into the Australian bush for several years. When she wandered back to the farm she was shorn.The total staple length of the fleece was in excess of 35cm, but I have only used the inner 20-25cm for this project as it was super clean and lovely.
The 4 batts are of equal size, each 20g/0.71ounces, giving a total of 80g/2.82ounces.
Based on the most wonderful 18 micron Australian Merino (the softness of which I cannot describe, it has to be felt to be believed, which coming from someone who normally works with 19 micron is a huge complement.)
All of my batts are double carded, meaning I sort my fibres, card them through once, the split and mix all of the batts and run them through again. This results in batts which area perfectly harmonised with each other and, for the spinner would ply together like a dream or for the felter would lay out seamlessly. This process is very important to me, because I spin and felt the batts I make and given the quality of the fibres I use it would be an injustice to do anything less.
All of the fibres used here have been dyed by me using Australian Landscape Dyes (except the lurex). As water is a very precious resource here in Australia I use it sparingly when rincing. Some colour may run if you decide to felt these batts, you may get slightly coloured bubbles. I do not expect the colour of the fleece to change or fade.
These batts may show up differently on different screens. I have done my best to get the colours right. :) The Lurex I have used in these batts can be a bit slippy when spinning and felting.
