I decided to take a little break from silk and spin one of the art batts I got at the fiber fair in Dallas-Fort Worth when I was there a few weeks ago. This is yet another new type of spinning for me! An art batt is basically a constructed chunk of various fibers in complementary colors.
It’s REALLY different than what I’ve been working with. Different fibers, different preps, different textures, all mixed together – spins VERY slubby but pretty.
It’s basically a big rectangle, and you tear off strips and spin them. The pictures show the batt as I bought it, then unrolled, and then as I’m spinning it.
