Ashford Wild Carder
Prepare your fibres effortlessly for spinning wild art yarns. Have fun creating and mixing your own blends and colours.
The extra long 72 point teeth allow you to include differing fibres, fabric, ribbons, feathers, paper and novelties to create unique blends.
The packer brush is adjustable and will control fine, low-crimp fibres and increase the size of the batt. The drum clearance is also adjustable which 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 doffer and cleaning brush are stored on the carder.
The carder is strong but lightweight with hand hold for easy carrying. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. You can card differing fibres and fabric, ribbon, feathers, paper etc. Have fun creating and mixing your own blends and colours.
