Product Description

Card and blend fibres and colours quickly and efficiently.

This new, improved model 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, colours and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt.

Adjustable drum clearance – allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fibre. 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 carder is strong and robust with the body made from Silver Beech hardwood. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. Card 65gm (2¼oz) batt quickly and efficiently. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.

The included adjustable packer brush smooths, controls and packs more fibres onto the large drum. Card mohair, angora, alpaca and other fine low crimp fibres. Fits all Ashford drum carders.
