Our new drum carder!

It's finally here!

Last week we ordered a drum carder.  It is a Fancy Kitty Kitten drum carder, and it is pretty great!

We haven't done a whole lot with it yet.  Brian will be the main carder, and so far so good.  We both practiced a bit with it, and Brian made a few batts that looked halfway decent. 

We plan on using our newly carded fiber to felt handmade cold-processed soap, which we will be offering in our shop later this spring and summer.  We've ordered some wonderful soap from three fellow Etsians (Etsy sellers):  RockyTopSoapShop, LippincottSoapCo, and prunellasoap.  All three make soap that is natural and/or organic, and they make it the old-fashioned way.  We'll feature each soapmaker and soap as we get it felted.  There will be something for everyone!  Unscented, scented, organic, vegan -- you name it!  If you've never used felted soap before it is definitely something to experience!  Alpaca felted soap is soap and a loofa all in one!
