Here is a drying rack of freshly washed wool. After it is totally dry, it will go into the picker where the fibers are opened up and the vegetable matter is removed. This is blown into the picker room where it looks light and fluffy. After that it can be put onto the felting table to create sheets of wool felt.
It will then go to the carder, which is the heart and soul of the mill. This lines up the fibers and creates rovings, batts and we can also make rug yarn.
These are batts that can be used to stuff pillows, comforters or used in felting.
This is how the rovings come off the carder.
Here the rovings have been put onto "bumps"
