Blending Fiber on the Drum Carder

August 11, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

product_image_tn_332Create exciting color and fiber blends using the drum carder. Learn how to create your own multi-colored batts and roving. Drum carding is also a great way to incorporate all the left-over fibers in your stash into one spectacular yarn.

Some fiber is included in the cost of the class. You can also bring some of your own fiber to share in a class project. Make sure that your fiber is well washed.

Bring your spinning wheel and a drum carder if you have one. Participants will share the use of my drum carders.
