I got some unwashed CVM fiber  to play with this week.

washed CVM

So much tiny crimp! I love it!

 I love this fiber it feels bouncy, springy, and next to skin soft. I want to call it sproufty (I know that isn’t a word but it should be).  As you can see it is a bit stained so I want to dye it.

CVM all dyed up.

I dyed this with cushings acid dyes in purple and I love how the color took in the different spots. I’m thinking about handcarding this fiber as my drum carder may be a bit too harsh for that delicate crimp.

It even dyed where it was stained.

I grabbed my cotton carders and started making rolags or rologs depending how you were taught.

Charging the carder.

 Don’t they look great? Here’s a close up.

I love this fiber it made super fluffy rolags that bounce back. I’ll spin this up later this afternoon and put it into the post on friday.
