Hand made drumcarded batts

Hand made batts will soon be available for sale, these pictures are a preview. For general colour blends I use Falkland Merino X dyed tops.Supersoft and with a great colour selection the batts are repeatable for use in larger projects. Images coming soon. Measuring a whopping metre long the batts usually weigh around 80g.

For my hand dyed versions I use the white top fibres from the wool and fibre pages as well as wool from my own mixed flock, which is based around Shetland and Ryeland, with interesting additional crosses giving some spectacular fleeces. Of course I want to keep these for myself, but there is only so much one woman can spin… Batts from my flock will be labelled with a named picture of the ewe the wool came from and details of her breeding.

Cheviot acid green, pink & purple rolled battThe batts are made using my Ekelund Carder, designed from concept as an electric machine, rather than an electric adaption of a hand cranked one. It has many special features not found on other machines, see the Ekelund Carder pages.
