Come in several varieties of carding cloth for wool, cotton,
and exotic fibers. Finer cards are primarily used for very
fine wool, cotton and exotic
fibers. Wool cards
are generally curved, and cotton cards are generally flat (unless otherwise
noted). Choose from Ashford, Glimakra, Louet,
Schacht and Strauch.
Used for opening locks for carding or
spinning. A quick flick at each end of a lock of fleece
will open it up, help remove second cuts, and weathered tips, and
loosen organic matter or other debris.
Drum carding is undoubtedly the quickest, easiest way to prepare and
blend fibers. Preparing several pounds of fiber takes a
fraction of the time it would take to hand card or comb the same
amount. When youre preparing
your own blends of fibers and/or colors, you can not only experiment and determine just
the right proportions, but also get much more consistent results
in larger quantities.
There are many different drum carders on
the market, ranging from "mini" or roving carders to big heavy duty double-wide
motorized carders. The one you choose should be suitable for your purposes and types of
fibers you enjoy working with.
