So, about a month ago I got 3 whole fleeces from a friend's farm. I've washed them, and this past weekend I mixed up my acid dyes and dyed and carded a bunch!
Carding is SO SLOW. Well, it's not the carding itself, so much as the flicking to get the fiber ready for carding. I borrowed this carder, I need to start saving to buy one. I'm thinking a Schacht or a Duncan.
I hooked it to my BBQ so I could card outside hehe
before and after
Playing with Dye
I did some in the crockpot, and some in aluminum caseroles.
I love this color!
There was pink, and blue, and rainbow as well! Fun, but time consuming.
And I'm currently spinning my big Rambouillet batt from MDSW
J says it looks like drier lint, but I love it anyway!
