One thing I know my readers love is drum carders. (If you don’t love you some drum carding – click here for a baby alpaca being cute). When I saw this video from my friend Mary from Acres Wild Alpacas I knew I had to share it with you. Here Mary shows you how to card fiber with an electric drum carder. Mary is partial to “crazy batts” (as am I.) Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It’s really making me want one of these…

This weekend I am at SAFF (Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair) in Asheville, NC. Today I am taking a class called “Painting with Wool”. Doesn’t that sound romantic? I will be taking pictures and posting them on Alpaca Farmgirl on Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and eventually – here.
Now it’s time to hear what you fiber divas have been up to – Share your fiber adventures below in the Fiber Arts Friday Blog Carnival.
