OK, now that you've done that, let's get into it.
I've been drooling over Nic's art batts on instagram forever, so way back when in February, I decided that I needed to grab one for my birthday.
I picked out this lovely batt, Peacock inspired, and started spinning it on my birthday eve.
Just amazing isn't it!
I spun the bad boy, all 5 ounces of it, using a method for spinning batts from the book Yarnitecture, called stacking, as in I stacked sections of each colour to spin them together.
I also did way more prep and pre-drafting for this, and let me tell you it paid off.
My singles were finer and more consistent than any I had ever spun.
Which means of course I had more yardage than I've ever gotten out of a batt before.
I present to you the squishy-est skein of two-ply yarn in the history of yarns,
Well maybe not, but as far as I'm concerned it's amazing. 512 meters in 5 ounces of super squishy, super sparkly, merino silk yarn.
Now I just have to spin the matching batt.
