Do you remember these?
Well, here is the yarn! It squishy, bouncy pretty and pink. I’m delighted with it. It screams baby girl to me. I chose to chain ply, so there is a lovely gradient from light pastel pink to dark raspberry.
My current spinning project is a test-spin for our not-yet-released product – Big Batt. (All I can think of is ‘I like big batts and I cannot lie…’ :))
I love spinning batts. I like how the colours are bit more heathered, almost tweedy looking with a little bit of texture. These are not ‘art batts’, we card them smooth, with only little bit of interest. And they are big – 200g minimum each, it’s like a giant fluffy blanket!
I’m spinning thin, not sure if I’ll chain ply again. The batt is a subtle gradient – one end is tealy blue, the other one more lavender purple. It might look good as a chain ply, or a single for lace.
Big Batt is very delicate and it has to be kept bagged. I unfolded it, rolled it up like a jelly roll and I’m keeping it in plastic bag that it comes in. Very neat.
How do you like to spin batts?
