Another Art Yarn!
I recently traded some dyed fleece for this fabulous fiber batt from JazzTurtle on Etsy. The batt contains: merino, bamboo rayon, soy silk, milk protein fiber, corriedale fleece, targhee fleece, merino/cormo fleece, kid mohair locks, bamboo noil, silk noil, sari silk and angelina. I stripped the batt into several thin strips and then started with the tan and worked my way through to the blue fibers. I spun it thick and thin (although I wish I had spun it a bit thicker) and then plied it with an organic cotton thread in coordinating colors and formed coils and beehives by pushing the fiber up onto the cotton thread as I plied it.
The batt started out like this: Day at the Beach fiber batt
