Paradise Fibers – Blending Board - Large Size
The Paradise Fibers Blending Board is the ultimate fiber preparation tool. These Boards are great for absolute control of your blending, ultra-consistent fiber preparation, and to create the most awesome rolags with repeat ability that’s unmatched.
Most creative item I have added to my fiber world. Opens lots of new avenues to color ways in my spinning.
So far I’ve enjoyed the size and the quality of the blending board.
Just starting to play, but I'm really liking this 90 TPI Paradise Fibers large blending board. I was looking for a way to combine the various types of prepped roving and tops that come in the Fiber of the Month Club boxes without introducing too many neps. The downward draw of fiber onto and off of the board seems to retain much of the original fiber alignment while, well - blending! Though I can see where the board will also let me experiment with much more textured yarns, I can spin the smooth, worsted (semi-worsted) preps that I gravitate towards.
I made my first rolag with this blending board from PF. It was so much fun and so easy to do! This was my first time making a rolag on a blending board and I'm afraid I packed on too much fiber - the rolag is super dense and a little difficult to spin from. I also managed to roll the rolag too tightly while removing the fiber from the blending board and it was difficult to pull the first dowel out. I had to get one of those rubber grippy things for opening jars so I could grasp one dowel and free my rolag. I certainly need more practice to avoid these troubles, but I hope this experience I had can help others!
