Batts for Shawl

Here are the batts that I carded up for the shawl. I'm going to lay each the three colors on top of each other and pull into roving. I hope to maintain some seperation of the colors. We'll see how it turns out. Wish me luck!

Black and silver/brown alpaca
Tussah silk and grey Coopworth

Brown Cotswold and red Kid-Mohair

Tracy, for some reason I'm not able to comment on your blog. These bats look lovely. Smart to keep them separate and draft together. Will be watching for the yarn.
Thanks for the well wishes on the soon to be here BabyDoll SouthDown sheep.

Your fiber looks wonderful. I have never tried keeping the different fibers seperated and then drafting together. I'm interested in how you go about doing that and I can't wait to see how it comes out!
