I suppose it was inevitable - 5 years of spinning and eventually I would purchase a pair of hand cards. I never had a reason before - all the gorgeous hand-dyed's you can purchase on etsy could keep me busy for years.Then I started drooling over Weetsie's gradient carding for ages and I finally got off my duff and ordered a pair of hand cards for myself. The fiber is wensley from Minniedent/wool pig's shop - gorgeous! There is 6 ounces so it should make a good amount of singles!
I would love to make something like that but first I had to learn how to hand card a gradient. I found a tutorial to do that here.
And here's my first hand carded gradient -
Gorgeous! Now to find time to spin!
