Wool Hand Carders- what they can produce!

My friend sent me the above photo...isn't it great!!!
This is fiber from a beautiful white alpaca...I washed it in warm water...it actually just sits in the water to let the dirt fall to the bottom of the bowl.
These are my new old paddles...I load it with fiber...if anyone knows...am I putting on to much??
Then I gently brush over it with the other paddle
Then I roll it off
Then wa-la....out comes a little baby bunny in a "bed" of cabbage. LOL...you kinda need to use your imagination on the cabbage!! lol...I added slivers of sparkly fibers to the carrot...
He does have a little poof for a tail. I dyed all these fibers...Are you ready to give this a try???
This is on my ETSY for a short time (then I will move it to ebay)
