Making a sample art batt:
|Bottom to top: wool/alpaca, sari silk, dyed fleece, Jacob wool and the original batt|
|Sending the batt through a couple of times distributes the add-in fibers evenly. |
I love how the silk colors pop through.
|Using the small hand card held lightly packs the fiber|
|Pulling the batt off the carder--the reveal!|
|A 25-gram batt ready to spin|
Now the fun begins, spin the batt and then to extend the yardage I can ply it with thread, yarn, or spin another single of something else? Endless possibilities!
