These mini batts from Akara Yarns were originally created for her 2021 advent calendar. Inspired by gemstones, Rosemarie of Akara Yarns hand-dyed and blended a range of commercial tops and locally-sourced wools, adding a touch of sparkle as a happy touch during our cold winter days. These small formats and bright colours are perfect for your first foray into spinning, and for exploring different local and Canadian sheep breeds.
Each batt is approximately 25g, and is comprised of a unique fibre blend.
