Colour Blending Fibers: Hackle & Diz

I carded various fibers with my drumcarder. The photos shows the fibers lashed to the tines of the hackle. This is a double-row blending hackle. I will next used a diz with a small hole -- one does not want a large hole. Pulling the fibers through the small hole in the diz will create a nice roving for spinning. This method also blends the various colours. I like that the shorter fibers are separated from the longer ones.
