Kingfisher Wool Batt - Art Batt for Spinning
Inspired by watching Kingfishers in my parents garden as they dove into the pond for fish. This art batt blends blues, creams and oranges.
Using commercially dyed Merino wool, I have combed the fibres using my drum carder to create a beautifully soft and vibrantly fun art batt perfect for spinning beautiful hand spun yarns and chunky art yarn.
Wool batts are comprised of fibres that have been carded and taken off in one big blanket sheet, folded and rolled.
Not just for spinning, try experimenting with felting, both wet and needle felting.
How do I spin wool Batts?
Spinning from them is pretty easy if you've never done it. You can peel strips off the sheet to spin on a spinning wheel or drop spindle. You can even spin directly from the batt. Check out my video tutorials for more information.
Add extra bits of fibre to the wool batt, take some away or use them as they are.Check out my Blog post: 'How to Spin from an Art Batt' for tutorials and examples for spinning Batts.
