Carding Some Wool

Carding Some Wool

I dye most of my own wool. The problem is that I tend to felt my roving a bit when I am rinsing. That means I have to recard it. I had some not very pretty pink that I got bought cheap because it was a little felted. I recarded it with some other colours.

This is the wool combination I will put through the carder. the carder is big. There isn’t that much wool only about 150 grams, so I only use part of the carder.

This is the first run through.

After I take it off the drum I split the batt and flipped each section to run them through again.

This is the second time through and the final ball of wool.

This is all the wool I did.

There are a couple more blended wools in there too. Now I have to make them into something.
