Cat got your creative tongue? We can help! This like the *big* box of crayons for the fiber artist! You'll get a delicious assortment of fibers, varying in texture, color, type for your fiber project. Typically... there is a lot of sparkle. Unless you choose otherwise. Then we won't ;)
The photos are meant to show a variety of possible fibers that you will receive. You pick up to two colors for the basis of your package. We'll then put our painterly senses on the burner and put together an assortment of fiber sure to inspire! We love to put together fiber packs, but we haven't the time to spin, felt, weave, knit (you get the idea!) everything we dream up -- let us surprise you!
We'll send you your color choices expressed in various fibers, in roving, locks, natural and synthetic fibers, some carded, some loose. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to put them all together in whole new ways :D If you send us pics later, we'll post them on our fan page at https://www.facebook.com/wildethymeart . If you make something that you sell here on Etsy, even better--we'll direct them to your listing too :D
If you send us a pic, we'll work from that too! Picture one is a kit we built for a handspinner based on the pic she sent us, and the rolags she created with her order :D
With each color you choose, we will send variations on that color as well as bits of color to complement it. Not match, mind you, but complement, accent... Laura was *strictly* a painter for over 25 years and has great experience with color. She also teaches color at the local University, so she'll pull things together in ways that she often did with her students, in ways that challenge and inspire.
Some of the ways that you can use these are:
--Expand your library of color, texture
--discover new color combinations! (Seriously.. some of our favorite batts have been inspired by
the process of preparing fiber for our clients!)
--embellish your needle or wet felting endeavors
-- Spin a yarn that you never would have dreamed or dared
-- combine them with any of our other kits to expand your color, texture possibilities
** Our pictures are that of past assortments we put together for spinning and felting in the studio because we knew we wanted to offer this listing.
**At present, some of the possibilities include:
-- Cotswold locks
-- Wendsleydale locks
-- Carbon Fiber
-- Milk fiber
-- Mohair locks
-- Firestar (nylon)
-- Corriedale Cross
-- Tussak Silk
-- Silk Noils
-- Faux Cashmere
-- Silk Organza
-- Silk Gauze
-- Sari Silk
-- NZ Wool
-- Shetland Cross
*All in a biodegradable, cello bag :D
*We sometimes ship/store our wool products with lavender. Please let us know if allergies are an issue.
***Please*** And this is important.... Tell us if there is something that displeases, irritates or causes allergies and we will leave it out. We want you to be challenged and inspired, but never, ever unhappy :D
*We use a mix of commercial and locally grown fiber. The latter may contain bits of vegetable matter.

Frequently Asked Questions
We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)
Custom and personalized orders
The ability to customize, personalize orders is the number one reason we work mostly on a "made to order" basis. We want you to have everything just as you need/want it! We understand that this makes our shipping times slower, but we hope you will agree that we are worth the wait :)
Does your roving come in one, continuous piece?
Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.
Why is the shipping so high? Can you fix it?
It's a long, convoluted answer having to do with the fact that we offer variations of weight in our batts and other items. We pay the extra shipping on larger batts, but we have no way of setting the shipping lower on the sample sizes, so we have to meet somewhere in the middle --which is often WAY too much if you are ordering a quantity of sample batts.
And yes. We can fix it, just message us. Or.. check out and leave us a note reminding us to refund your excess shipping. Either way, we understand. We hate overpaying for shipping too :D
You forgot my felting needles. Will you send them?
If we forgot them, of course we will :D
But first... take a peek on the side of the foam. 99.99% of the time, they are there, just overlooked.
Why does it take 10-14 days to mail a batt?
We dye a very large proportion (60-75%!!) of our wool, Firestar and Silk. We're really proud of the number of colors we offer-- and we only have plans to do more. We do this because it the work we love to do, it's one of many things that we think make our work worthwhile, special. Additionally, we do not want our batts sitting in inventory, compacting from lack of use. And then... what if you want to customize the batt? We do that too :D
We make our batts to order because we make them for you— and we make a LOT of them, so there is usually a line when you order as well. We think they are worth the wait and hope that you will too. Naturally, if you need something faster, let us know. We work magic, that's what we do :D

My friend, the biggest Halloween fan, asked me to felt her a Halloween gnome, specifically with orange hair and beard, a purple hat, and a bright, lime green hat band. I had those colors, but was not happy with them. I requested the purples and greens from you, and what I got was perfect. The purples were deep and varied in texture, and the greens came in such great variety, I had a hard time not putting everything I had into the band! You rescued my Halloween gnome, because before I got your package, I was about to scrap it as I was that unhappy with my current colors and textures. My friend is thrilled and said he came out better than she imagined, and now I'm sad because I had to let him go and give him to her! Thank you for making him the perfect gnome. I will be buying again!
