"Learning to Card......."

This is my bag of washed Icelandic Sheep fleece. Don always says that it looks like human hair......I guess that it really does. The block clamped to the table is called a "teaser". It is used to tease open locks of fleece.

"The Carding Operation....." :)

A number of finished batts........

Barb came over that night, so I set the carder up again so that she could try her hand at carding.

I'm teasing locks which Barb then fed into the drum carder.
