Okay, so its already well into summer and most people are well past any spring cleaning. However, I tend to browse many, many fiber related boards and a very good subject came to light. How to clean your drum carder. In reality, any equipment a fiber artist uses needs to be properly maintained. Sometimes it's easy to tell what to do for instance when your wheel has a squeak its a good chance that it needs to be oiled somewhere. Other times its not so easy like with a drum carder.
So in my fiber travelings (around the internet) this one website was mentioned several times. It had well documented processes and well it kept it simple silly! So if your wondering if you are keeping your drum carder in well maintained form you may want to visit Abby's Yarns where you can get more details on how to clean your drum carder. Remember not all drum carders will come completely clean but it should be an excellent starting point.
