I went to the Twist Festival
http://http://www.festivaltwist.org/en/ in August and bought an Ashford Kiwi 2 wheel and the Wild drum carder. I received them last week and we waxed my wheel and put it together and here they are!:)
I haven’t used the wheel yet because we were busy getting all these drop spindles and nests of fiber ready for Culture day when I will be showing students at a local school how to spin. Each of them will get their own little spindle, fiber and instructions.
My wonderful Dany has made over a hundred of these little guys! And I got to try out my drum carder to make the orange Batts, what fun. I can so see myself mixing colours and carding my marino/cashmere mix I bought at the festival.
The dyed fiber was my first time using Ashford acid dyes, I really enjoyed playing with them.
Two more weeks to go before Culture day when I get to try and hook the kids on fiber;) wish me luck.
