Ashford Drum Carder - New Two Speed Model

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. Or use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colors and different fiber types consistently into an open and airy batt.

The new carder retains the 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 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 2oz batts quickly and efficiently. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use. Awl, 2 clamps and carding instructions are included. Batt size 22ins x 9ins. Carder Weight only 11lb.

Please choose your style option:
Superfine 120 points for very smooth and soft batts
Fine 72 points for finer wools & exotic fibers and smooth batts
Coarse 36 points for fun and funky art batts

Also included is the Packer Brush.

Ideas for Use
* Card fleece into large 2 oz batts.
* Blend colors - natural blacks with dyed blue looks stunning!
* Blend different fibers - wool and mohair, wool and silk - experiment!
* Fleeces with a break and short edge pieces from a fleece card well together to make a batt for felting or a sliver for worsted spinning.
