This last weekend I did some carding. I was making Monet batts.
First my daughter and I pulled apart small bits of wool and mixed it up.
Then onto the table and spread out ready for a trip through the carder.
This is after the first pass through the carder. I split the batt into layers and put it through again.
This after the second pass through
I made 3 mixed colour merino batts
I recarded some over dyed brown and white Romney wool I had .
And one mixed colour Romney batt
They are fun to do and great for felting or spinning textured yarn. I was thinking I didn’t do anything for Felt United Day, October 4, but I guess I did. Did you do anything?
