Mystery Batts




Here is a fun project that is new to me. These squares of fluff contain all kinds of unnamed fibers like angora, mohair, llama, alpaca, sheep wools and angelina fibers(sparklies!) that you spin up into a fun yarn. I am surprised how soft it worked up-no, I don't know what it will be yet! I spun the blue and the green seperately and then plied them together on a high ratio on my Joy wheel, but plied it pretty quickly so it would not be tight and lose the fluffiness of the fiber mix. It is a worsted weight yarn now-don't hesitate to give yourself a treat and try it!
