I would like to thank everyone for being patient while I dealt with the crisis our family was going through. Now it is time to get back to work though!
Today’s update includes hand carded batts that I have dizzed into roving.
First I carded the batts, sending them thru the carder several times to evenly blend the fibers together.
Then I ran them thru a diz to make them super spinnable! I have found that newbie are often hesitant to try batts because they are quite sure how to draft them. That’s quite a shame because batts make wonderful yarn.
Each batt to roving was then braided to keep the fiber in order, again to make the spinning easier.
I have also added some beautiful Suri Alpaca locks.
As always, you can find it all here.
