a couple years ago when I dropped in to Niche in Atlanta they were using a drum carder and showing various techniues....The one I like wa using the drum carder to produce roving that had long very gradual colour changes.........
That sounds interesting...I've never seen that demonstrated, but I can imagine it would be relatively easy to do...the drum carder would do a nice job of transitioning from one color roving to another, giving them some mixed color during the transition.
Wouldn't be without a drum carder, they make the process so much faster.
