Ok, so I've been looking at doing some felted projects, but I'm missing the hand carder to work with my wool. I have a little over 3 lbs of creamy colored raw wool right now. I've been looking into hand carders, but they're so expensive! While I was looking I found a little fiber blender here:http://www.createforless.com/products/productDetail.asp?ProductID=136742&GCID=C10601x061&utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cse
It's like $40 less, but it's only about 2.5 inches wide, where the normal size seems to be 6 inches wide. I don't know if something that small will really be able to do what I want it to do.
Since I want to make felted puppies, I'm also going to need more than one color of wool. Would I be better off dying the wool that I have to the colors I need, or should I buy wool in different colors? I don't need purples or blues or any unnatural colors, just shades of brown and black and stuff. Does anyone have advice on that as well? Thank you for any help!x-posted
I'm posting this in other knitting communities, but I wanted to post it here too because I know that there are people on my list that knit, and I remember looking at some of your dyed yarn ladytalon, so I just thought it wouldn't hurt. :)
