    Excellent tutorial! Pictures are clear, instructions are paired with the pictures so there’s no guessing what’s being talked about. Also gives, I feel, a realistic sense of what to expect during the process and the amount of work involved.

    I just skimmed through the tutorial and am hoping to get carding very soon. Love the pictures and the descriptions, which make it all seem do-able. Hope my old carder can handle it. Thanks Abby!!

    This is an excellent tutorial, and it has answered all my questions about making a tweed yarn. The photos are clear and the material is well laid out. And the sample yarn you’ve made for the tutorial is absolutely beautiful. I’m inspired now, and will be spending some quality time with my drum carder. Thank you Abby!
