 Cheesy
I appreciate that!
Boy those are mis-named! They are really beautiful. I wish I just hadn't spend all my money in MD at the sheep and wool show!

I LOVE "ugly" batts..  they definitly aren't ugly!!!!   It's hard to imagine the carder that pulls off 1 lb batts!!   I got 3 of them a couple of weeks ago..  lots of colors and sparkles..









They are preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO') huge!!  I took a size photo, with an ugly batt, my loop april club batt (which is 4 oz) and a loop baby cake batt, (which is a half an oz, or a bit more..)


I can't wait to start spinning mine...

WOW!  Shocked Those are some huge batts! I've never heard of ugly batts before now, but the name doesn't fit... i'm sure they'll spin up lovely!

PS.  The first thing that came to mind for 'Ugly Batts' was really 'Ugly Bats' which brought to mind those smooshyface vampire bats  Wink
