All I Want for Christmas

Is lots of tiny, sharp, metal teeth!

drumcarder

I’ve had this carder on layaway since, um, July? And I finally got to pay it off with my Christmas money.

It has already gotten acquainted with the cats (they were not happy to have competition on the fiber nomming front), as well as my knuckles (hey, did you know that drum carders are sharp?), and I’ve managed to produce something that looks vaguely spinnable from it, even:

(33g merino, tencel, alpaca, silk, and baby camel)

I will, of course, have to go spin this batt. For educational purposes. Yes. Don’t look at me like that!!

    And I’ll second the “nom” on that fiber.
