Over the holidays I went to a flea market and found a pair of wool carders for $2! I knew I had to buy them, but now I have no idea where to get wool to use them on. I've barely started spinning yarn on a drop spindle, let alone carding my own wool
I live in a city... not a ram/sheep, etc in sight. Any suggestions?
I find it really depends on what city you live in. Im in toronto and thankfully there are yarn shops that sell wool hanks to spin up.
also, if you want an idea to do some carding, I take all my leftovers from every project I do (except cotton), and I use my carders (aka dollar store cat brushes....it does the same thing), and spin up what I call 'everything wool'
