The Rambouillet Merino flock used to create these batts is sourced from Nelson, WI and is next to the skin soft. I personally visited the farm on shearing day to pick out the softest, cleanest fleeces that I heavily skirted before sending to a local mill to ensure no harsh chemicals were used that alter the structure of the wool. Because of this breed’s crimp structure and because only soap was used to wash the wool (not an acid bath) there is some VM in this wool that will fall out during spinning.
The grey Icelandic fleece is from "Loki" who lives in Lodi, WI on a small family farm. This fleece has been hand-processed and blended by Buchanan Fiber and uses the soft undercoat with only a portion of the outercoat remaining when creating the batts.
All colors are carefully hand-dyed in small batches and blended with naturally-colored Icelandic on my drumcarder. I’ve created these batts so you can decide how the final product will look! You can make color changes as short or long as you would like and feel free to continue blending with your favorite fibers to create one of a kind art batts.
These batts are soft, but could be considered a little scratchy for sensitive individuals.
