Yesterday, I dusted off the carder after and awoke it from its winter hibernation. With a little oil and a bit of persuasion, the card ran beautifully. We, the card and I, processed about 70 pounds of dyed, luxury blend rovings--wool blended with silk, soysilk, bamboo, and/or nylon. And a dash of angelina in a few.
Here are a few videos:
