A luxury batt for spinners or felters..... Spin or felt - this beautiful fibre mix lends itself to any creation requiring a super soft, silky and warm outcome. I find this 80/20 mix ideal for handspun yarn.
Our gorgeous 18.5 micron Tasmanian superfine merino wool top is carded with the magic fur of Tasmanian brushtailed possum fibre. Each blended batt is handmade on my drum carder and is 100 grams. Each batt will be unique, but I can make a "dyelot" if you want a larger quantity (max. 500g).
Colourway : These batts are the natural colour and whereas possum blends are essentially "brown", the wallaby mix is a smokey grey.
Please note that our wild fibre is obtained from the Tasmanian Government licensed producer and the fibre has been further processed by us to ensure it is yummy and ready for you to use. But please wash your handspun in a good wool scour before making up.
This fur is neither road kill nor shed, it is a by-product of a sustainable and humane cull carried out under Crop Protection permits. Help us respect the animal by valuing it's fibre.
