Like Liz’s fiber, I love her yarn too. The colors are amazing and it feels so good. Now to find the perfect project.

These were a great and easy spin, and the colors are perfect; definitely enough to make it recognizably blue, but with enough pops of other colors to make it interesting.

love these battlings. Super fun to spin. Did turn out more dark purple then I expected. I was hoping/thinking/wanting more of the colorful outside battlings and got more of the dark middle one. Still beautiful and a wonderful spin.

I love these battlings. My colors turned out more brown and turquoise then the picture. I was hoping they would blend with the Tunnel Vision color for a two ply but really don't. Computer screens. Despite this minor hiccup, I love these battlings.

About

A fluffy explosion. Sparkle!

In 2006, I dreamt up a way to earn money for college books. It had nothing to do with wool, and everything to do with squeaky new Etsy. Suddenly, I found myself face-to-face with handspun yarn on this site and dove straight into the fiber arts without coming up for air. Ever.

I love composing batts. Combining the right balance of color, texture, and contrast is what ignites my excitement in the studio. I dye and blend fibers full time, mostly overnights so I can wrangle two precious little ones during the day. My goal is to create a batt for everyone, from traditional spinners to the wild art yarnies. Felters too! If you live for a spinning experience that will surprise you, soothe you, or ignite your handspun customer base, please give a Hobbledehoy batt a whirl.

I dye nearly all of the fibers you see in my shop on my own using professional permanent dyes. I only use fibers soft enough for a baby's skin. If I wouldn't put it on my own child, I won't offer it for sale. The formula is simple: Soft fibers + quirky colorways + textural contrasts = one of a kind fiber bases for handspun projects worthy of heirloom statuses.

Let's make some wooly magic together.

    I've been experimenting with wool since 2006 when I first encountered the unique and magical qualities of handspun yarn. Since then, I've been elbows deep in a studio of rainbow wooly bits, blending and carding and dyeing to my heart's content.
