First--give over an entire section of your living room and purchase a shop vac for decorative addition.
2--Measure out some fiber. Next spread out a bit more to choose just how the fibers are going to be carded.
6-- Make nice to the biggest drum.
7-- Now that the carder knows what it is being fed it will be rather hungry. Keep feeding a little at a time.
Don't forget to make nice occasionally. ( in the background is a basket of preweighed fibers waiting their turn.)
OK now for the big time!
and 10--lift the batt as a whole piece off the large drum. Sometimes the drum is still greedy so being especially nice will encourage it to release the entire batt.
11--fold and admire.
13-15--clean (drums, under drums, table top, under the table. Bits of fluff get everywhere).
Major magic time. Pixies are slowly being added to the Pixie Batt webpage. So far we have some nice alpaca/bfl ones ready to go.
