Admiral of the Fire is a rustic, hand blended combination of Romney (dark brown) and dyed Border Leicester locks (orange).

This batt was gently hand pulled into roving and hand chained for safety in shipping.

Grant Hart, ex Husker Du and favorite of my inner child, once wrote a song called "Admiral of the Sea." In it was a verse about the "Admiral of the Fire."

"I am an admiral of the fire, but you probably could tell me by my black attire. Flames rising higher and higher, I am an admiral of the fire."

Someday, I may depict the admirals of sea, land, and air in wool, but for now, fire is what came to mind.

The skein is not included; it is only shown to give you an idea of how the roving might spin up. (It's about a sport weight 2-ply.)

This colorway was created for Phat Fiber's December 2011 sample box theme, "Childhood Favorites." It weighs 1.25 oz (35 g).

This wool is NOT SUPERWASH and it WILL FELT, so please be careful when washing your finished item.

All items come from a smoke-free home.

Free shipping for US Customers! But for further information about methods used, etc., please see my policy page.


I am new to international shipping, therefore I am charging a flat shipping rate of $10.00 for the first item, plus $0.25 per each additional item. I realize this seems high, however, if your actual shipping cost is LESS than the amount paid, I will refund the difference via Pay Pal. It is my policy NOT to gouge on shipping costs for anyone, so please buy with confidence!

Thanks for looking!
