Card it Up!

Handcards are not just for rolags! Use your handcards to create batts, gradients, roving, and tweed.

In this workshop you will card and spin color and fiber blends using wools, silk, angora, mohair and alpaca. Samples will be put in a notebook along with the "technique recipe" so that you can recreate them at any time using your hand cards (or other blending tools like blending boards or drum carders). A great way to jumpstart your creative fiber blending!

Skill Level Required: Intermediate - Must be able to spin a continuous yarn without assistance . No carding experience needed.

Homework: N/A
