This batt is a sigh of contentedness. It is reminiscent of a delicate white tea served with a butter cream frosted cake, with pink and green roses. So soft, feminine, yet luscious enough to be slightly decadent. Enjoy slowly.
This is the full-sized fiber art batt we contributed for the March 2012 Phat Fiber Sampler box, themed "Tea Party". These are now made to order :)
*Each* purchase made from our store permits an entry into the Ravelry, Phat Fiber Incentive thread to win the Super Box! Not familiar with Phattie ways? You can demystify here: http://phatfiber.blogspot.com
"Tea and Cake" is:
— 1-8 ounces hand dyed and commercially dyed fibers
--- lamb's locks
--- Tussah Silk
--- silk noils
-- butter yellow
-- olive green
-- bits of lavender, yellow, blue and green
We store, and frequently mail, our fibers with herbal sachets of lavender, cedar and/or rose. If you would like this left out, please let us know as we are quite happy to oblige.
FYI: We're cat and dog friendly people, but we have a brick and mortar store/studio where our fibers are stored and prepped.
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.

We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)
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 :)
Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.
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
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.
We dye a very large proportion (80-90%!!) 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. 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
