Art Batts

Kiri Cottage Two Art Batts 2

I’ve been working on two art batts today, created on my Brother Drum Carder.

I’m looking forward to spinning these later today.

These are a mixture of wool, bamboo, tencel, recycled sari silk and trilobal for a bit of sparkle. Pretty!

Speciality Hand Spun Wool

Kiri Cottage Speciality Hand Spun Wool

I have recently completed a 3kg batch of my specialty hand-spun, hand-dyed, thick singles, destined for a customer who is a weaver. This yarn (approximately bulky/ super chunky weight) will make a lovely, thick, warm and colourful material. It it also suitable for knitting and crochet.
