Experimenting with the Drum Carder

I spent a thoroughly lovely morning setting up my drum carder and making some beautiful batts. I had put the carder away before moving house a couple of years ago, and it had a part completed red batt on it, which turned out like this.


I had hand dyed some Bluefaced Leicester in beautiful shades of pink and green, so I used those colours as the basis for the next batt:


I love the way it came out:


After that I carded together some beautiful shell pink, orange and brown roving which was a gift from my family. There’s some lovely gentle colours in this one:



The final batt I made was in these deep blues, with some green merino and blue-green silk accents:


Here’s the finished batts. I’m looking forward to felting with them soon:
