Hey all, I am so excited, my brand new drumcarder just got here a few hours ago and of course I had to try it out right away!

Here are my first few....

Taste the Rainbow---2.1 oz, hand-dyed mill ends



Pink Sunday---1 oz, BFL locks, dyed by HollyEQQ



I also have one new yarn to share.....Sunkissed---245 yards, superwash merino dyed by Funky Carolina, thick & thin plyed with holographic thread.



Thanks for taking a peek and let me know what you think.

Off to card anything else I can find.  LOL!

Love them!  Congrats on getting a drum carder.  I can't wait until I get mine (should be here within a couple days...).
The holographic thread really makes that yarn sparkle.  Pink Sunday is a great color, and the texture is so cool.

Yay for having a drum carder!  The batts look great and Sunkissed is awesome - it looks all tropical and happy.

Your batts look so squishy. Isn't drum carding fun?

Thanks so much everyone, I do love my drum carder (although my wrist is killing me).  The yarn is my fave so far that I have spun, I need to find a great project for it now.  Smiley

I like sunkissed. How pretty! I have always wanted to try holographic thread. Do you have an online source?

I actually got mine at Joann's, so I bet they sell it through their website.  I just picked it up in the sewing section.  Smiley

Thanks for the compliments y'all, a drumcarder is a blast!
