I bought a pound of fleece a while ago, and it's just been sitting, so I mixed a little dye up and it's steaming as I type. It's going to be red-orange. I am going to hand card it with a little shiny nylon. I am so glad I have handcards, I am going to take them with me where ever I go around the globe, they are portable and though I would really like a drum carder, or even an electric one, this is so much more practical. MAKE-ing yarn from the ground up.
