Cuckoobatts are fluffy drumcarded spinning\/felting batts. The ones in this batch are all at least 2 ounces.

CARTOON TIGER is a streaky orange and blue-black batt of handdyed wool with a little mohair. It's a cartoon tiger because the bright light orange with dark blue streaks reminds me of a tiger in a fading comic book page. They're wrapped with paper and matching vintage orange fabric (which could be cut into strips\/bits and spun\/felted in for novelty effect).

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.
