This watery, ocean batt was inspired by the Greek God, Poseidon--Lord of the Seas. He was the brother of Zeus and had a stormy temper. (I've also listed a batt named after his first wife, Amphitrite.)

Here's a rich, semi-textured one ounce batt of plant dyed Merino, silk sliver, domestic wool, alpaca, soy silk, Rambouillet cross lamb locks, and rustic silk noil. The batt has a base the color of light teal or seafoam--somewhere between blues and greens. A layer of "old man Poseiden" is added--blue soy silk, natural gray alpaca, and plant dyed brown alpaca. The final touch is rustic teal silk noil and teal blue and green Rambouillet cross lamb locks.

To make these colors, I used natural indigo from my indigo vat, osage orange sawdust, dried weld, and locally harvested black walnuts. This listing is for one 1 ounce batt in the Poseidon colorway. I take my photos out of doors in natural light. Please keep in mind that colors can change with different types of lighting and on different computer monitors. I had so much fun making these batts! Thanks for lookin'!

These batts were used for my May, Greek Mythology, Phatfiber samples (www.phatfiber.com). Phatfiber is a yummy box of yarn, fiber, and other fiber reltaed goodies sent to your home.
