Make unique blends for art yarn with the Ashford Wild Carder, specifically designed for today's fabulous, fun and funky art yarns. The extra long 72 point teeth allow you to include differing fibers, fabric, ribbons, feathers, paper and novelties to create unique blends. The packer brush is adjustable and will control fine, low-crimp fibers, packing fiber more efficiently onto the large drum and allowing "added extras" to be packed into your batt, increasing the size of the batt. The 4" carding width produces a very handy size batt to spin. The drum clearance is also adjustable which allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fiber. All nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn. The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. The doffer and cleaning brush are stored on the carder. The carder is strong but lightweight with built-in hand hold for easy carrying. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.
THIS CARDER IS EXPECTED BACK IN STOCK AT ASHFORD ON APPROXIMATELY MARCH 16TH. When in stock, it will ship directly from the manufacturer in New Zealand. You can expect to receive your order within 5-7 business days after order is processed.
