Here’s the second half of that top I am working on. This time, the blue pile. This first picture is fairly accurate on color. You can see the ribbon of mohair being kinda shiny running down the top.
One benefit to carding…..it gives you a chance to find and pick out the occasional sheep hair.
Once the carder stops taking fiber evenly, I run it around while holding a slicker brush to burnish the fibers on there. I want the whole 2 ounces in one batt.
Once the batt is formed, I ran a knitting needle through the opening in the teeth, and rolled the batt off using a piece of paper for added pulling power.
Full on shot….blue fluffy clouds!!
