I am so thrilled to be able to offer these beautiful domestically prepared wool batts, perfect for creating that soft, natural look for your precious baby’s first photos!
This listing is for one continuous 4 oz. batt, or piece, of 100% wool in Black Cherry, a lovely heathered color. Most photographers find 4 oz. to be a good amount; however, for a larger backdrop or to have extra on hand, additional quantities are available. For your reference, the amount shown in these photos is 4 oz.
Black Cherry is a rich burgundy-purple colored wool. This color features variegated shades of deep red, dark to medium purple, and black. This is 100% virgin wool. It is very fluffy and soft to the touch, and has a wonderful textural quality with little nubs throughout.
You will receive your batt rolled up inside a sealed plastic bag. By its nature, wool batting is a delicate material. It is not sewn, knitted, or felted together. These natural properties make it an extremely versatile material to work with, but it also means it will not last forever. Gentle handling and careful storage will extend its usability. To use, gently unroll the batting and arrange as desired. The wool can be spread or stretched out by gently pulling it between your hands. It can easily be pulled apart into multiple pieces if desired. You can also fluff out the edges of pieces and layer them together if you wish to visually join them after pulling apart. If wool becomes soiled, you can spot clean by using a bit of mild detergent and carefully blotting the area clean, or you may simply pull off the soiled piece and discard. Handle gently, and do not rub too much when washing, as friction will cause the wool to mat together and felt. For storage, I recommend gently rolling the wool back up and placing it in a sealed bag in a dry place.
More of these batts are available upon request, just message me for a custom listing!
