It’s heaven to card fluffy batts — to spin or felt — with this workhorse… Here’s a batt I made yesterday, in different colors of springtime, from merino wool, silk, Blue-Faced Leicester, camel, oatmeal-colored cashmere, recycled sari silk, Wensleydale locks, and some strips of silk fabrics that I’ll spin or felt in later:
