You can create art yarn using various supplies.
Here I will show you how I use carding machine when making batt for spinning art yarn.
- dyed merino (Germany, Volkel)
- tops of my hand dyeing
- dyeв viscose (Troitsk factory)
- and natural soy fiber
Gather together all you want to mix and spin.
Divide all with the help of your weights into equal parts, for optimal use of the carding machine.
I have an Ashford machine with 60g capacity
Now mix green merino and tops
Then add soy and beige merino
It's the turn of viscose (in the right) and coral merino (in the left)
Finished with a layer of green merino and tops
Remove the batt from the carding machine.
That's what you get in the result:
The batts are ready for spinning.
And that's what came out after spinning:
Art yarn of 3 threads (spun by navaho), 5 wounds in one inch.
