Proof that there is actual progress in the matching sweater project. This is the "test batt" that we carded on the Super Carder and since its rolled up nice and neat, I don't want to unroll it to get a measurement. The carder managed the 2 ounces of blended fiber without as much as a hiccup so I would say that my math appears to be correct....so far. The next step will be for Susie to start spinning and then do a test swatch to test for both gauge and drape. Assuming that the test swatch works fine, I will then start weighing out fibers into small bags and the carding of the next 100 batts will begin in earnest.
