This is my "slightly used" drum carder. I decided I'd keep the "used" one and re-sell the "new" one. Thankfully, the used one came first so I can play with it instead of just staring at an unopened box.
Can I just say, "FUN!"
I Kool-Aid dyed one bag of washed fleece. It is a pretty harsh bag-o-wool, partly because of how I washed it (more on that later) but mostly because it came from sheep who's wool was never intended to be spun. I've been very pleased at how much VM (vegetable matter) comes out during carding. I'm having so much fun that I'm having trouble working on Todd's socks.
Since his birthday's tomorrow, I'd better get off my computer and start knitting!
