So I dragged out my very lovely carder and just had a play. Both children are at pre school this morning and instead of tidying the house, I have just added to the mess. (And I feel pretty good about it. :o))
Firstly, I carded 3 mini batts into one. They were left over from the colourway that I used to create ruffle on a scarf... there's only 51g, so I think the new fibre blend might make a nice wrap. I also dizzed the fibre from the carder and made a big floofy "roving" to see if it become any easier to work with.
Apologies for the photo quality. I just wanted to show and tell in a hurry. :o) I'm quite excited to work with it further.
Lastly, and I may have already posted about these, so my apologies if that is the case, I have two batts, which between them add up to about 100g, if memory serves, that I think could look gorgeous spun out and plied together. Since I am really only beginning on my spinning journey, and do not yet have the knowledge/talent/time to do this myself, I've considered putting them up for sale as a pair in my Etsy shop. I'd enjoy felting with them, I'm sure but they don't call to me as felting batts.
I've called them "Stormy Seas" and the bluer of the two is the sea, with the grey one being the sky. :o)
And look at that... just enough time for a mad dash around the house before pre school pick up... who says I can't do it all? :o)
