 +====== Card Wool ======
 +The act of carding wool to stuff the [[b:​balls|balls]] with, to take out the knots, dirt, &c., for the purpose of making the balls softer, more elastic, and to have a more even surface than would be the case if the wool were not carded. This operation is repeated every time a pair of balls is [[k:​knock-up-balls|knocked up]]. Formerly it was [[t:​tease-wool|teazed]],​ and not carded.
