Do you like surprises? Good, good, good -- We sure like surprising you!

Great for spinning, felting, these batt contains contains and combination of commercial and hand painted fibers. We sort our fibers by colors, so you never know what you'll get--but it will be awesome and it's unlikely that any two will be the same! Really... why should they be, right!?!?!

All batted fiber comes in a bio-degradable, cellphane sleeve to keep it happy and pretty :)

*** Choose 1- 3 colors and we'll go from there. Leave this info and any other info needed in the
buyer's comments (like... is there a fiber that you do *not* like, are allergic to?).


FYI: We're cat and dog friendly people, but we have a brick and mortar store/studio where our fibers are stored and prepped. Occasionally one of the cats--Fred-- gets in, but not for long. He's after the cat nip stash we keep for our felted cat toys, lolol!

We do our very best to represent our colors and textures, photographing them in a lightbox, in sunlight, with/without flash... Having said that, we hope that you'll understand that there are so many variables that will affect what you see (including monitors, climate and individual perception) and that you understand that some differences can occur.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wholesale availability

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

Beautiful colors, fantastic. Great variety of colors.. I am in love. I did not know that it had some SURPRISE threads. -- No problem I just removed them and recycled them into a beautiful felted ball for my current creation.... No waste.

Always love the fibers from this shop and the inclusion of lavender. thank you.

My favorite place for fibers. The colors never disappointed & are always securely packed.
