wool mohair blend batts

I have been making some gorgeous batts on my Pat Green drum carder, using some fine soft wool from a merino cross lamb, and some lovely mohair. I have dyed the wool to shades of violet, moss green and blue--teal, and a cerulean. The mohair is dyed grape. I have been swirling in spritzes of mohair to the wool onto the drum carder and am quite pleased with the results. I call these batts "Mediterranean Summer"
