Our surprise scrap batts are now available as rolags! This is a great way to find out if rolags are for you :D
We sort our scrap fibers into three categories: Neutrals, Vivid hues and pastels. This creates a batt and roll that has been reborn into a unified color scheme that is much easier to plan than our earliest "Kitchen Sink" batts. Artists must grown, yes? :)
We sort our scrap fibers into the pastel versions of primary and tertiary colors — red, yellow, orange, blue, green, violet — to make these pastel rainbow rolags on our BIG carder. Did you know… technically… Pastels are pure color (hue) with *grey* added!
You can you pull on the ends to create roving. With this roving, you can spin it in to yarn, create cobweb lines in nuno felting, needle felting... Of course, you can always wet felt them, as is, to make dred locks!
*You'll receive 2-5 per ounce depending on how thick we roll them :D
*Listing is for one ounce.
Each rolag order *may* contain any-or all-of these fibers:
mohair, mohair locks
Perrendale, Cotswold , Teaswater or Icelandic Locks
Rayon from Bamboo

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

It's almost impossible to wait until Spinzilla to spin these babies. They're GORGEOUS!! Steph and Laura always do such a lovely job, I'm always so pleased when I buy from them!

Incredibly beautiful colors, just the right amount of textured bits and sparkle so the yarn still came together reliably but was never boring to spin. What a delight to work with! I affectionately called this one 'magic unicorn barf' haha. Lots of compliments from people who saw it. My only critique is that the fiber/yarn isn't as soft as it could be, but that's probably for the best, as if it was slipperier, it would have been harder to spin, and this was great to work with.
