I could just dive into these…I had a beautiful braid, BFL and silk, but when I spun it, it “babapo’d”. Not that there’s anything wrong with intentionally barber poled yarn, but mine wasn’t intentional. Since I’d just decided that a drum carder wasn’t in my budget, I ordered some carding cloth – which hasn’t arrived yet. Out came the hand cards I’d won in a drawing at Fort Worden last year. I know so little about hand cards, I don’t even know what kind they are. My guess is that they are for cotton…lots of teeny teeth.
In spite of the awkwardness and the sore shoulder afterwards, I was very happy to see the colors separated, the fiber fluffed. Now off to teach myself long draw woolen spinning.
