The creative Muse has finally popped in to Split Rock Ranch! Yesterday I carded up these beautiful soft batts using uber soft merino and bamboo fibers. I named this blend Rose Garden. The batts are available for sale in my etsy store. I made the two batts so I could see how they turned out and I can make 2 or 3 additional batts with the fiber I have left in my stash.
Limited Edition Custom Fiber Blend
This beautiful soft blend reminds me of a rose garden. Soft pastels = Dainty, delicate and feminine. This Limited Edition Custom Fiber Blend combines soft merino wool roving and custom dyed bamboo in soft shades of peach, cream, pink, minty green, blue, yellow and rose to create this gorgeous blend. Gently blended on our drum carder using a technique we have perfected to assure good color separation.
Next to the skin soft and would be perfect for spinning yarn for making something for baby! Want yarn from this but you don't spin? I offer spinning services, as well. Please convo me for pricing and additional information.
2.0 oz in one beautiful lofty ultra-soft batt.

Fast Facts about Bamboo
Bamboo is an environmentally friendly fiber.
Bamboo plants are fast growing - they have been known to grow over 3 feet overnight.
Bamboo has a unique anti-bacteria agent and this agent has been shown to last for many washings.
Bamboo is naturally pest resistant and can be grown without the need for pesticides.
Due to the fiber structure of bamboo with it's micro-holes, it can absorb and evaporate sweat from human skin in a fraction of a second.
And, to add to the appeal, bamboo has the sheen, weight and drape of silk. Bamboo is more alkaline tolerant than silk and is not harmed by the aluminum in antiperspirants like silk is.
