Filling up the store!


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.
