It’s all in the ‘cards’.
Or so they say. I was recently gifted with some washed fleece. One of my spinning-related dreams was to be able to card my own roving and now’s my chance. I got a pair of cat brushes from a local pet shop:
$10 bucks a piece. Whoo.. But for now, they do ok, considering a set of real carders can cost upwards of $50.
I then grabbed this:
Some washed fleece the name of which I do not know, and spread a little of it on the bristles of the cat brush. And when I was done.. I had this:
Some of it is ‘blended’ with some bamboo I got from Karen, but that’s not working out so well. I’ll just card the wool and think up some other hair-brained scheme for the bamboo top.
Here’s a shot of Sizzle’s back:
I’m about 1/4 the way up the front. I should have it all done by next weekend.
So, really, all I need now, is bigger ‘carders’ and I’m ready to roll!! Back to carding I go! 🙂
