It's July and the spinning is easy. Grab your fiber and favorite spinning tool and listen in as I talk about washing alpaca fiber, keeping angora bunnies cool in the heat.
Music used in today's podcast in from Music Alley, formerly the podsafe music network. A big thank you to all the musicians that put there music out there for us to hear, we love you for it!
Summerfeeling is the name of the interlude music and it's by Dreamweaver.
Triple6fusion played Night of the Dancing Guitars.
The wonderful closing song for the podcast is by John Voorhees.
Don't forget to check out my new Artfire store Zavagantstudio. Fibers with lots of luxury for spinning are currently available.
There are not really any photos for this podcast, but feel free to check out my blog anyway.

This podcast talks about carding with handcarders, or a drumcarder. Not only is it a wonderful way to get your fiber ready to spin, it is also a very useful tool for blending fibers or colors.
Carding with handcards is shown on this video. We made this video when we were podcasting about cotton, but the concept of carding is the same, and I thought it would be good to include the link again.
There was a big announcement quietly made in this podcast: My new online shop! This shop will be a place for selling fibers and other creative pursuits that catch my fancy. You can find it at ZavagantStudios at the Artfire website.
If you want to see other carding that I have been doing, check out my blog.
The music used in today's podcast is from a podsafe music network, mevio (formally the podsafe music network site).
The interlude music is Summer by General Fuzz.
The closing song is Midsummer Night by Robert Walker.
And as always a big thank you to Clare Dowling for the spinning song that I use as my podcast theme song.

A big thanks to Ravelry's Kashimama, for putting this list together for our Ravelry group's reference. I thought it would be a good idea to put the list here and occasionally update it to keep it on the current page.
