Very cool...glad I saw your ravelry post! Merci. I didn't know I needed one of these until now! :)

Wonderful job! I'm looking forward to seeing the rolags you make with it! Thanks for posting this and for putting the link on the Rav board :-)

I'm so glad you posted this! I've been reading about blending boards everywhere, but didn't want to spend $170 on one! At the DIY price, I think I will probably go for it now!

tricobsession said...

juste génial ton truc !
franchment quand j'ai vu les vidéos j'ai trouvé ça super .. mais le prix est effectivement celui d'une petite cardeuse (sont fous les mecs !). Mais là ta petite leçon de bricolage m'a sidérée.
bravo et merci !

Thank you so much for your blog tutorial! I believe with your photos, I'll be able to make one, too. I have just messaged Amy about the cloth. I hope you have a wonderful time with your new toy!

You can also order the carding cloth from Wingham Woolwork, in England. They estimate £22.80 as the cost of the cloth.

I made mine, following your instructions. I wish I had looked harder for a cutting board with a handle. I haven't stapled mine yet as I have no staples of the correct size, but I hope to get some next week. I have found that instead of the rolags, I much prefer dizzing the fiber off into long, soft roving!

Jocelyn said...

Thank you! Merci! I found your post on Ravelry, bought the cloth and am bookmarking this for when it arrives! A+

ISA said...

Merci beaucoup pour cet article très intéressant :-)

Martina said...

Great idea! I just had a look at the price and decide to make it myself. Your idea is very good too !Thanks for sharing ;-)

Roberta said...

Merci pour ton blog e tes ideés.

Carding cloth and blending cloth are different. Blending cloth tines are slightly longer and more flexible than carding cloth. This would be an important difference if you were planning on using your board for art batts.

Fantastic tutorial though. Immensely inspiring. I've just ordered cloth through the rollin rolags group on ravelry.

Thank you for this post! I attended New York State Sheep & Wool last weekend and saw a blending board in action. After looking online and seeing the price of them, DH also suggested that I make my own. Your idea of using a bamboo cutting board is wonderful!
