The Louet Classic Drum Carder is the same model Louet has been making for the past 20 years. It has a fine cloth of 46 teeth per square inch, so you can easily card wool and other coarse fibers, and it is perfect for making those wonderful blended art yarn batts! (I first encounted and used this model carder at Camp Pluckyfluff and couldn't stop thinking about it until I got my own -- and WOW!) This carder is easy to use, easy to clean, handles all kinds of fiber and add-in, and makes exceptionally large batts (2-3 oz, easily).

All current model Louet carders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. The drums of the carders are 19 cm (7 1\/2") wide. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louët carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. The Classic's gearbox is enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system. This surface speed ratio is 9:1. Doffer brush and doffer pin are included - there's even a place on the back side of the carder to store them!

The first picture is an image from Louet. The other pictures are of my carder, in my studio -- this is what I use for my art yarns and batts. You will receive a new, in the box carder, shipped to you from Louet. Additionally, I'll ship out to you an ART YARN CARE PACK with all kinds of fun things to blend into your batts -- locks, noil, firestar, nepps, etc. -- so you can start having fun right away!

If you're wanting to make ultra-smooth batts from fine fibers like angora and baby alpaca, however, the Classic is probably not the model you want. Louët has five different drumcarders: the Classic, Standard, Junior (or Roving), Elite and Electric drumcarder, and I'll be happy to discuss your needs and help you pick the right model for your needs. If you would like to purchase one of these other carders and don't see it in my shop, please contact me. I will be happy to list it for you.
