Prepare Roving for Spinning with Hand Cards
Learn how to make a carded roving using one hand card, a lockpop and a diz with Kim McKenna.
“This fibre prep will have shorter lengths of fibre in there because I didn’t remove those. It’s a little bit fluffier, so it doesn’t lay flat quite the same. So your spinning has a little bit more loft to it when you spin from this type of fibre prep. Even if you spin it with a forward worsted draft and if you spun the wool combed fibre with a forward worsted draft, the wool comb fibre would be a little bit more compact, and this would have a little bit more loft or bulk to it.”
