Thanks to crafting a human in my spare time, and two cats that love to pull out wool and munch on it, I haven't really had alone time with my carder in awhile.  BUT!  I managed to pull it out today to card up these funky little batts.  I absolutely love the texture!








It's carded mill end wool, superwash merino, bamboo and soysilk.  Super squishy and I think it'll be a really fun spin!

Thank you!  I also got these batts carded up this morning.  Together, they weigh about 2.5 ounces and are carded from mill end wool, superwash merino, mulberry silk, sparkle and firestar.
