This unusual and pointy looking object really is a useful tool for blending.  On the hackle is both merino top and dyed angora, being blended into a wonderful top.  In the podcast I talk about the process for using this tool.


I decided not to make a video, even though with this tool it is very helpful to see someone using it.  I made this decision because there are already several good ones by other fiber artists on YouTube.  I recommend Bluemtnhandcrafts videos.  The first of three is here.


The music in this podcast is from Music Alley formerly the Podsafe music network.  The interlude music is by The Rev Jimmie Bratcher and is called Grammy's House.   The closing song is Over Coffee and Tea by The Simple Carnival.


Until later, happy spinning!
