I’ve been blending fiber (washed and prepped by others) on my Ashford Wild Carder. Super fun! Here’s my progress so far:
For the second pass through the carder, I put together the darkest and lightest segments of the batts and blended those sections. I don’t want to remove all color variations, but I want either the variations to be gradual or the yarn to be fairly uniformly heathered. My initial thought was to aim for a tweed yarn, but I don’t think I want to blend it much further than I already have.
Pictures of the fiber after the second pass and spinning samples in my next post. Stay tuned!
