Carding cloth—found on handcards, drumcarders, flick cards, and blending boards—is a spinner’s best friend. In this issue, we celebrate all things carding! You’ll learn from Roy Clemes how carding cloth is made, and then try creating five different fiber preparations with handcards. Read a Shetlander’s history of the classic woolly hap and make your own. See Amy Tyler’s collection of flick cards and learn two favorite techniques. Then, explore a stone-age approach to preparing flax for spinning, a spinner’s super squishy rib, wool pickers, and more.
