I tried my first blending experiment with the Louet drum carder yesterday and I really like the way it turned out. I combined some hand painted silk I received in a trade with some BFL top (Grafton Fibers) and unprocessed white Mohair locks (Running Moon Farm).

These batts turned out so soft and lucious!

Of course, now I cannot wait to see how this spins up! If there is enough fiber here, I think this may one day become a shawl. Wouldn't that be beautiful???

However, I MUST be disciplined!!! My spinning priority is the Sea Mist fiber I am spinning for my Creatures of the Reef Shawl. I joined Stasia's Knit Along and need to be ready to knit, swatch completed, by July 14.
