42% Family Farmed Cormo Wool 42% New England Romdeldale Wool 15% Seacell
The Cormo used to create this batt graze on a beautiful ridge in south central Wisconsin. The shepherdess coats her flock, meaning there’s no VM. She has been breeding her flock with spinner’s in mind, making these some of the softest fleeces I have encountered. The Cormo is naturally colored dark brown.
The Romdeldale wool comes from a small-scale shepherdess in New York who maintains a variety of breeds for hand spinning. The Romdeldale is naturally colored a lighter brown and is soft and springy.
Seacell is a combination of seaweed and wood, combined to create a soft fiber with a short staple length. The manufacturer uses the same process that is used to create Lyocell, with no chemicals released as waste. It is OEKO-TEX certified, able to be composted at home, and is certified organic.
Although we generally only use natural fibers, Angelina was a must to recreate the shimmer of colors on the Morpho Butterfly. Hard to capture on camera, the angelina reflects light to create changing colors and is very soft.
Wool for these batts were hand-processed, starting with raw fleeces. This means little to no second cuts and a wonderfully smooth batt.
