Belvedere (a lilac Jacob Sheep) – washed and carded into batts – coming in at just under 2 pounds (3 ounces pictured)
Although the Supercard puts out a spinable (spinnable?) product in one pass, I prefer a second pass through the carder. When all the fleeces are carded, I’ll sort then into groups of similar “handle”. These will be blended together in the second pass. Some different colors will be layered during the second pass, producing stripes of color in the finished batt. Some batts will be “dizzed” off the carder, producing a long run of roving.
2 down and 20 fleeces to go!
