I've been carding faster than I can spin lately!

Here's some of the stuff I've worked up recently--



Ribbons
4 ounces of domestic wool


Mint Julep
3.10 oz of Merino/Baby Alpaca
I loooove this one!! Reminds me of mint juleps on a summer day.


Mermaid Kisses
2.2 oz of hand dyed corriedale




Spring Chicken
2 oz of hand dyed corriedale


Garden Summer Salad
3.5 ox Merino / Baby Alpaca
One of my favorites of the bunch. SOOOOOOO Soft!!!!




Wine & Lace
3.7 oz of Superfine Merino and Baby Alpaca
Luxurious, soft, and smooooth as butter




Cloud Nine
4.2 oz hand dyed merino

Thank you, Belruel and Dragonflywer!

I probably wont spin these up myself. I like to play with fiber more than I like to turn it into projects right now... haha It's a serious problem.

Same!! Mint julep is my favorite too. They are all rolled up here but are so fluffy in person.

I love these! I love the small details, like how you put ribbon around them. I am just learning how to "present" the batts I made, and I love how you describe them.
