The Ashford Super Fine Drum Carder with 120 points per square inch works wonderfully for finer wools and luxury fibers. Carder
blends fibers and colors quickly and efficiently.
This new, improved model measures 8" in width and has two ratios for even more flexibility and control when carding and blending. Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece. The controlled intake and carding will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting. Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colors and different fiber types consistently into an open and airy batt.
Adjustable drum clearance 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 superfine 120 point wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life.
The carder is strong and robust with the body made from Silver Beech hardwood. It has rubber feet to prevent it from slipping. Card up to a 2oz (50gm) batt quickly and efficiently. Carder comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.
