Done well drum carding is a thing of beauty. It transforms fibre in to beautiful blends. It can take a tangled mass of fleece and turn it in to a beautiful fluffy batt that spins wonderfully.
It's one of my favourite way of combining multiple fibres, particularly braids of combed top that I might be guilty of storing too long...
If you're already a drum carder fan... how about this one? It's a great tutorial showing you how to make a rainbow roving, perfect for spinning gradient yarns. Remember the gradient roving I sold several years ago? This is how it was made.
This post is part of my advent calendar 2016. Every day in December we're saying so long to 2016 by embracing learning, knowledge and creativity. Each day there will be a new post with a new skill or craft. You can read all the past posts here.
