Carding wool is the first step towards easy spinning and consistent yarns; however there is no one way to card wool. These four master spinners each give their own techniques for carding, ranging from deeply traditional to somewhat eccentric. They all work.

 

The DVD includes discussion on:

  • How much fiber to load on the hand cards
  • Starting from the top of the card or from the lip
  • The number of rolags that can be formed from a single carding
  • Preparing brand-new cards
  • Whether or not to change hands

Good Value Review by Glenda
Rating

Even though I've been working with wool and raising sheep for many years, I found things of interest here. Interesting to me were the details about how wool grows, and I have even been using the In Sheep's clothing e-book as a handy reference for a concise overview of differing breeds. I have the 1st edition of Homespun, Handknit and had been told this edition was more contemporary. Though I gravitate toward classical, I found it to hold several enticing projects. Haven't watched the carding video yet, but Good value for the information and products included. Even though I wouldn't have chosen these individually, and thought several of them would be superflous to me, I have enjoyed it all and especially at the price it is offered, I would recommend it as a good introduction with a few interesting details for those who have been at it awhile.
