build-a-batt bar!

over at

shop.laigrai.com

i am trying to keep things interesting

... like rolling out new products that i think are super fun.

last week i was all about the festive garlands

and this week,

a little something something 

for the spinners, felters, & fiber fiends!

i launched my brand new idea

the Build-A-Batt Bar!

i am selling my hand-dyed fibers by the ounce!

no pesky pre-weighed or pre-selected fiber packs-

you get to choose exactly what you would like in your batt

and in the exact quantities you desire!

as luxe as you want it!!

i was inspired by build-your-own-sundae bars,

and candy shops brimming with colorful treats...

i also LOVE to share my fiber stash with my batt club members

 and just about anyone who comes over to visit

gets the grand tour & ends up feeling merinos and cashmeres

before they leave!

i used to have a thread in

my ravelry group

where 

i showed pictures of what fibers & colors i was currently stashing

...the build a batt bar enables me to share my fiber stash

with all my favorite fiber friends! 

and the more you buy- the more fibers i will be able to stock!

i am so so so excited about it!!

since the grand unveiling yesterday- i had a few batt orders :)

& i wanted to show photos to all my blog pals

of the build-a-batt bar in action!

this batt was custom designed by dani of

pumpkinhaus

(if you're reading this dani, sorry for spoiling the batty surprise! ;))

i was really really excited to card this one up

because dani did not add ANY roving to her mix-

this batt is entirely fleece and luxe add-ins 

which i have never done before!
