Batting On Regardless
Fibre-y science experiments in the wee small hours, with drum carder and wheel. I carded some batts of naturally coloured fine merino (home grown fleece) complete with nepps, some nice white alpaca, and silk. I then spun a plied, textured thick and thin yarn, just because. Amazingly, the yarn was balanced and it is exquisitely soft. Fun! I really must peel myself away from it all and GET SOME SLEEP!!
