I had been out of town all this past week, but I got home to a giant, fiber-filled package from my partner astryd who completely spoiled me with SIX beautiful batts!!!

I keep taking all of them out and playing with them... and it's given me such swap anxiety! After the worst dyeing luck last week, I wanted to hold off sending until I could get back in town to do it right.. I have no idea how I'll make up this great package to her!!!

From the top left and then clockwise,

This batt is a mix of BFL, superwash merino, silk, bamboo and sparkle.

The green batt is a mix of BFL, superwash merino, seacell, silk, bamboo, nylon and sparkle.

The black/greenpurple batt is a mix of BFL, superwash merino, silk, bamboo, sparkle

The yellow batt is superwash wool and sparkle.

This batt is a mix of superwash merno, bamboo, and sparkle

and finally, my favorite, the blue batt is a mix of superwash wool, bamboo, seacell, silk and sparkle. (it looks exactly like the sky.. it's so gorgeous!)

Thank you so much, astryd, for the fantastic package!

It looks like cotton candy! Mmmmmm, yum.
