With thoughts, and occasional rants, on farm, family and crafting. Just to stay sane, I knit. A lot!

I finished carding the pygora fluff I got in West Branch. It was a very dark blue green color. I mized it up with some white falklands and I do like the look of it. I started out using the drum carder while at spinning last Friday. That needed adjusting so I went back to using my hand cards, but the feel and color are nice.
I took out one of my Kundert drop spindles and gave it a spin. It spun wonderfully and with the wool I no longer had problems getting a new bit to grab hold of the end to add on.
I had about 2.6 oz of white falklands top that I added to the pygora fluff. I carded until almost evenly blended in color. I like the dark tint to the orginal fluff. It gives a very nice shade to the finished rolags and the spun fiber.
