Carding and blending is like "painting" only with fibers. Carding ( or brushing) aligns the fibers as well as opens them them up so that it is eay to draft fiber at the wheel. What joy to produce your own spinning yarns that are on of a kind not found anywhere else.

Meet Mark. he is returning back to weaving after a 25 year hiatus . He did not know about Saori and enjoyed the freedom of choosing random yarns for winding he warp for a scarf. He also loves the Saori warping frame and stand.
Clara is a spinner, and when she was at the studio tried a Louet S17 LOUET WHEEL my favorite entry level spinng wheel which comes as a kit . She immediately fell in love, it had the optional art yarn flyer and bulky bobbins available to fit this model too. She could have stayed all day and spun. she decided to to put the economical s17 wheel and flyer on layaway and bought a Glimarka loom bench for adjustable comfort at her wheel to take home right away. That is the bench I use in the studio, for both spinning and weaving . I have tried dozens of chairs and stools and none can compare to the comfort with the 5 adjustable setings, of this great bench for correct posture and ergonomic success at your wheel (or loom). My Glimakra bench will be with me for years extending my fiber art activity with painless joy. Light weight enough to take to spin ins( goodbye folding chairs). Students love them, they are adjustable height , strong, and my Goldielock's review is... " just right"..GLIMAKRA LOOM (FIBER ) BENCH
