Our hand-dyed Border Leicester wool was carded into this lovely 2 ounce batt, perfect for either spinning, or wet or needle felting. This batt is made from the fleece of our girl Buckwheat. Her wool was space dyed with two shades, a blue and a purple, of Greener Shades Heavy Metal-free dyes. I attempted to card the wool with a nice mix of both color variations to give this batt a little bit of variegation.
There are some small bits of veggie matter in this batt, as we do not blanket our sheep.
About our flock:
Our sheep are a highlight to our everyday. They are friendly, and always happy to greet you with a nose kiss (okay, maybe there are a few that prefer to just walk away when the offer arises). They receive plenty of good fresh country air, clean water, fresh grass, and organic hay that we cut here on the farm every spring and summer. They love eating treats like organic barley or oats, kelp, and kale. Furthermore, they always get lots of special attention later in the year when all us fiber enthusiasts on the farm can't keep our fingers out of the wool on their backs!
