Ashford Drum Carder
The Ashford Drum Carder is adjustable drums to suit all fibers. Card fleece into large 50gm (2 oz) batts. Blend colors – natural blacks with dyed blue looks stunning! Experiment by blending different fibers – wool and mohair, wool and silk. 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.
It’s kinder on the machine to wash fleece before carding. If in constant use, the machine needs regular oiling. Clamps and awl included.
