Is this a good view?  
Is this an appealing view of the batt?

Oh my!
You were right. I have watched your Supercarder video....SEVERAL times over.
I do need one.

Re: Oh my!
Welcome to the Dark Side ;) When you call Susan at Susan's Fibers to order your machine, tell her the redhead in Boulder sent you over for the Supercarder ;)

I don't spin, and I don't knit, and I'm drooling! So, uh, YES.

BTW, will give you feedback on the videos -- haven't forgotten, but can't see them on this computer so will look at them at work...

I do like it, but I think I prefer the last one you posted. It seems to show the colors better. Very pretty.

Thanks for the opinion. I'm trying to put 2 views of each batt. Hopefully that gives people a good idea of what the batts are like.

Happy New Year.

*nods* Looks like it's fairly true to color; shows the color gradiation through the batt as a whole; and shows the balance of angelina versus non sparkly material. I usually don't like to buy material online because I have the luxary of a having a few stores in the area that I can actually go in (if I take a day off of work to do so) and feel the wool and see the color in different kinds of light. So yes good presentation of product plus visually stunning.

In fact the only thing I'ld really like to see more of is something saying average staple length. I stink at remembering which varieties have what staple length and I try to take that into account for my spinning. ;)

Thanks. I do think it shows the Angelina better than the other pics. The Angelina is hard to get at the right angle for sparkle in photos. There is a lot more sparkle than ever shows up in the photos. Oddly enough, it does show more true to life in the video.

Wow it is oh so pretty. I am glad I have found you on Ravelry. I will come back looking at your wool and yarns. I am waiting for my first drum carder and am looking forward to starting blending my own bats, too. My drumcarder will not be a supercarder though. That thing scares me off - I would probably hurt myself on it, and anyway - it probably would not work in Norway either (different electric system and voltage.

Welcome - nice to see some Ravelry folks over here. Congrats on your new drum carder. If you have any questions feel free at ask here on on Ravelry.

Happy New Year.

Yes, appealing view, although I also really liked the one that looked like a red wig with a bun!

Thanks! I will be keeping the wig-and-bun views of the batts, but I'm trying to put 2 views of each batt. Hopefully that gives people a good idea of what the batts are like. This approach seems pretty good – it shows the Angelina a little more.

Thanks for your lovely comments on the videos :) I’m glad you find them useful. I do think that seeing the combing technique without the fiber is important. I have the raw footage for several more combing videos, including loading your combs, combing, and pulling top. I will let you all know as they go up.

Thanks for wandering over. I look forward to your comments (and any thoughts from your husband) in the future.

Happy New Year.

Thats stunning! I also discovered that if you have 2 or more batts, you can stack them and then twist them up like a lovely wooly rose. =)
