I've been doing a little experimenting with my drum carder lately...."painting" the fiber directly onto the large drum instead of feeding it through the licker-in (small drum), and combining colors I wouldn't normally put together. I'm having a lot of fun with it (so are the kids!). I am discovering that colors at all ends of the spectrum can play nice together. The result is refreshing and most certainly OOAK.

Here we have Color Experiment No. 1, a blend of Northern Lights Wool, Cormo, Merino, Bamboo, Firestar, and a bit of mystery wool thrown in for fun. I ran it through the carder just once to minimize color blending, pulling off a pleasing display that is different on each side. From deep purple to lighter tans to shiny chrome to the palest of pink, this batt is a color-lover's delight. What an interesting yarn this would be!

I recommend hand washing finished project in cool water and laying flat to dry as this fiber will felt. To encourage felting, agitate away.

Please note I card in small batches, normally producing batts varying in weight from just shy of a full ounce up to 2 oz. This batt weighs in at 1 1/8 oz. You will find thick and thin spots throughout; this is normal for my carding process.
