|Hand carders and fiber|
One of the main reasons I wanted hand carders is that most fiber is sold in roving and I really, really like spinning from rolags. So, instead of limiting my selection to only rolags, I thought I'd make them myself! I'll still be spinning from roving but it's nice to have the option to turn it into rolags.
My current spinning project is from a grab bag of fiber from SpunRightRound. If you read tinysea, you may remember that we interviewed Renee way back in 2011. She's one of my favorite indie dyers and has a great eye for color. The grab bag was a mix of different kinds of wool and all kinds of crazy colors. In short, it's perfect for my color loving heart!
