5 out of 5 stars

LOVE this fiber... but it's not a batt, it's roving wound to look like a batt. I do love it and will continue to reorder till it goes away.

5 out of 5 stars

I love this fiber, I wish it wasn't going away.

4 out of 5 stars

I agree with the people that said the fiber types are sandwiched together. This created periods within the yarn single that were one fiber instead of a blend and it made it difficult to spin a consistent single. I chose to spin a gradient single ply yarn. I knitted a shawlette which I love with it.

5 out of 5 stars

As another reviewer mentioned, this is not a traditional batt, the fiber is a long strip that is wound on itself. It separates easily and is pretty much ready to spin.

4 out of 5 stars

I love the quality of the fiber, as well as the quantity. The price might seem high, but it is very fair. Be aware, though, that the batts are combed and shaped into roving. But the different fibers are sandwiched together, which makes it a bit difficult to get an even yarn - sometimes, one color will draft while the other sticks, and you get splotches of color. (I'm talking about the I love Rock & Roll colorway, maybe some other colorways would be different). But all in all, it's good fiber for the money! It just doesn't spin itself out of your hand, it requires some attention and some skills.

4 out of 5 stars

These are beautiful, but they're not batts. This is roving rolled up to look like a batt. The fiber is very lovely, with just enough sparkle to make them special.

5 out of 5 stars

This fiber is fabulous. I wasn't sure because the price seems high, but it is worth every penny. It spins so smooth, and even. I love the colors and would recomend it to everyone. Please if you like color and smooth yarn buy this you will love it.
