On the 1st my spinning group got together to have a 'garden party'. We all brought 8-12 oz of fiber in two different colorways - one blues/greens/purples, the other autumn colors. We then ran it through a picker and divided it back up. I have pictures of what it looked like before going through the picker and then after I carded it on my drum carder here at home yesterday. I only ran it through once since I didn't want the colors to become homogenized.........I also added some sparkle to it. Some will spin it from the fluffs rather than card it.
