TOP: Fiber that’s been run through a wool comb, which looks like a giant hair comb. True top is processed by hand, and all its fibers go in the same direction with very little air between them. ROVING: Wool that’s been run through a mill on a carding machine. A carding machine has teeth that brush the fiber (like a giant hairbrush) so it goes in the same direction, for the most part. But since roving fibers don’t all go in the same direction, you’ll get a fuzzier texture than you will with top. (includes braids) SLIVER: A thinner version of roving. ROLAG: Fiber that’s been processed using hand cards or a blending board. The fibers are combed through on the cards or dragged across the board to spread them out; then they’re rolled by hand into long rolls. BATT: Fiber which is processed on a drum carder and comes out like a brushed and blended sheet of fiber. WOOL LOCKS: Fibers that have been washed and sometimes dyed, and they can be separated into individual locks from the sheep. RAW: Fiber which has not been processed, example wool which has been sheared off the sheep and hasn’t been processed at all.
Do you put your fiber in bags or bins etc? Does it live in a closet, under the bed, secret hide-hole?
Do you use an organizer or system? Do you sort your group your fiber into bins, label in bags, etc.?
