I recently picked up this 2.4-oz art batt at StevenBe. It reminded me of a seashell, with copper, blues, greens, and even some white and dark navy mixed in.
There is more than one way to spin a batt, but I decided I wanted to work this one up in what are sometimes called "fauxlags." I started by unrolling the batt and fluffing it up a little.
Then, I used a ruler to hold down one end of the batt and tore off a strip, across the width of the batt.

Once dry, I knit up a swatch with the sample. I used #5 needles and worked in all stockinette stitch.
