If there are any Bad Out hand carders in the PDX area, I could certainly use some pointers.
Mohair and BFL I hand carded and spun on a drop spindle.
Next plea... I've never spun anything other than wool and silk before, so the Angora goat locks have been a bit of a challenge. I finally got the washing down, and I carded it with BFL to make it a little more familiar to my hands, but it seems like it holds twist very differently than wool does. Does anyone have experience with this? Any Goat Gurus out there? Give me advice!
Baby Llama spun on a drop spindle.
The Llama roving has been the least headachey fiber so far. There was quite a bit of VM in the bag, but it picked out easily as I spun it. Right now it's working it's way onto my loom with a Habu wool wrapped stainless steel thread warp. So far, so good, sooo soft.
I'm taking a break and heading back to embroidery for the time being.
