Default Re: Synthetic Dubbing

I take a dawb of one color and a dawb of another and by grasping both together. I pull them apart and put back together. Repeating the shread/merge until I have it blended together. Adding one color or the other to get the color the way I want it. Sometimes adding a third color to get the "shade" I'm looking for. I have clipped antron yarn into short bits and using this method created "yarn dubbing".

This is a very boring activity so I try to do this while watching TV. Putting up a selection of blends in small quantities. A ball about the size of your palm will tye an amazing number of nymphs. Jewelry baggies are my preferred storage vessels.
