When I have a lot of little bits I like to card them together. First I pull them all into small lengths. This pictures make the wool look very blue. I think maybe because the table is very yellow.
I mixed up the colours in a big tub
Next I feed it through the carder
This is what it looks like as it comes off onto the storage drum. This is what the batt looks like. It is about 7 feet long and 18 inches wide.
There is always some wool left on the drum take off drum and I let the carder run to clean out the last of the colour and get what looks like a rolag as well. I ran it through the carder in a narrow stip.
I think I like the first time through the carder better than the second time through. I think it will make a nice hat. The small amount I will probably spin at a demo this summer.
