NOTE: EVERY BATT IS DIFFERENT! The batt shown here is only an example, so don't expect this exact one (in fact, it's already in its new home).

Riddle Cuckoobatts are fluffy 2oz+ wool batts hand carded willy-nilly with whatever I grab. Typically you'll see swirls of color, yarn bits, sparkle, maybe some sari silk threads. There might be mohair, alpaca, silky or mystery globs. What colors will you get? What fibers? What travels around the world yet stays in one corner? A woman has 7 children, and half of them are boys. How can this be possible? That's the Riddle.

So what's the Mystery? Each batt is knotted around a little surprise! What can it be? That's the Mystery.

Yes, I'm a big dork. I'll add more pictures of miscellaneous Riddle batts soon. (But honestly, the most you can count on for sure is that they'll be at least 2 ounces and mostly wool).


Riddle Cuckoobatts will make a colorful, textured yarn or felt. Because of yarn bits and neps, it's not suitable for a thin, smooth yarn, but it's marvelous fun for art yarn. Plan on a tweedy single or 2 ply or a cuckoo bubbly or thick and thin yarn.

If you've never spun from a batt, you can tear it into strips (and pre-draft them if you wish), draft the whole thing repeatedly until you have one long strip of roving, or (my favorite), spin directly from the whole batt, letting the fibers get drawn in randomly. Batts are lofty and draft effortlessly, so they're easy peasy lemon squeezy. If you're a beginning spinner, struggling with dense, heavy yarn spun from wool top, you will be well pleased with your lofty batt-spun yarny goodness.
