A Little Fluff
I did something I never do this morning. I used the carder inside. I usually make a giant mess when carding with hay bits and snarly lumps all around. I decided just to have the vacuum in standby and it all went pretty well. The dining room is none the worse for wear.
I was carding the Cormo that I dyed with the Black Walnut hulls. After it was dry and fluffed, I could see that I did not get a wide variation in color so I dyed some black and carded it in for contrast. I also carded in some white.
The resulting batts are little brown and gray clouds. I can't wait to spin them.
