Carded Shetland Wool Batt
These make a fantastic loose pre-felt, ideal for felting backgrounds, or as the basis for further embellishment in your felt pieces.
The fibres have been carded, but not needle felted, so they are extremely mouldable. I've been selling these batts at shows for a number of years and have many repeat customers who come back year after year to buy these versatile sheets of fibre.
Approximate size of these sheets is 90cm x 50cm but there is some variation.
Weight- minimum 100g (3.5oz)
Some batts may have holes in the sheet, but these can easily be matches when you start to felt the fibre.
If you are a spinner, I do not recommend these fibres for spinning. They will not draft easily, and will be a battle to spin.
Hand dyed by me in my home in the Welsh hills using acid dyes, these give strong long lasting colours.
This fibre is hand dyed in small batches, where more than one batt is available they will have been dyed at the same time, using the same dye stock, but my dyeing technique produces batts with subtle variations, no two batts are ever identical.
