But what am I going to do with all this fiber?!?
So here's the deal, reader. I need help picking out a drum carder. I don't want anything motorized, and I'd REALLY not like to have to put anything together.
Currently I have pounds and pounds of the following fiber-
Wool (Navajo, Finn, Icelandic, BFL, Coopworth)
Angora Goat (Mohair)
Here's what I need to know, If I want to blend Silk and Finn, can I do that on a medium tooth carder? Or can I only use fine toothed carder for blending fine fibers?
Also, Does anyone own the Ashford Wild Drum Carder? I would love something that could handle crazy art batts, but I can't find info on the teeth. Can I card a regular old mohair/wool blend through this? Let me know. And, has anyone used the Fancy Kitty Kitten Drum Carder?
Anyway spinners, What do you use? What do you like? What can I cram fine and medium fiber through and not end up in tears?
