Fluffy stuff.

I dyed this last week and to be honest I wasn’t at all happy with it. It was very similar to one I have done before and though I liked that one I really didn’t want to spin this one. Also I had the feeling it was slightly felted.

I decided I had nothing to lose by putting it through the drum carder. I have been wanting to do this for ages but had nothing suitable.

It’s completely different now.
So soft and fluffy and the colours have all blended together. I can’t wait to spin it. There is the odd knotty bit in it but I suppose with practice I will avoid that. I love it and I’m thinking socks.

    Both look good to me πŸ˜‰ what's in it? I bought a carder, but haven't really used it much yet… Maybe I should try carding that choice pile of handpaints-gone-wrong? Looks like yours turned out excellent!
