Set of 4 batts – 2 oz. (~56g) total 

85% sustainably sourced Merino wool
15% local milkweed floss

The Rambouillet Merino flock used to create these batts is sourced locally 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 that will fall out during spinning. These batts are very fluffy and not like the heavily processed wool you will see in most places, perfect for woolen spinning!.

There is enough milkweed in this blend to feel the difference while spinning and see patches of luster in the final product. I have hand-dyed the milkweed 3 coordinating colors (green, maroon, and orange) and blended a mixture in every colored batt besides the orange (no green) to provide fun pops of color! The milkweed floss is collected from local conservation groups, cleaned, and the seeds are then returned to each group for prairie restorations. Working with conservation organizations is an important part of Buchanan Fiber Co as we are providing volunteer hours that might not be fulfilled otherwise.
