Carding Fiber


In my fruitless quest to find a decent video of worsted spinning on a DROP SPINDLE, I came across an equally useful video (to me).

I’ve got some raw fleece here–half a romney fleece, 8 ounces of border leceister, and some alpaca–and some handcarders. I have a general knowledge of how to use the carders, but I do admit a bit of fumbledness, and I look like I own a cat on the days I slip.

Here’s a wonderful video that shows, without needing to tell, exactly what the movements are. :3

Hoorah! Now I want to hand card some more!
