Carding

In principle there is need the raw fleece first to rid of dirt and to wash. There is good to card the wool, helping the Hand carders or with the Drum Carder for spinning or felting. Machinely carded wool is also available, but many people prefer in own hand working. By the carding you easily make the beautiful airy, suchlike cottonwool material, which there is a pleasure to spin from it. The big advantage of hand carding is a possibility of mixing colours and different provenance fibres and getting the unrepeatable look of your yarns.

Drum carder

With this card machine you can prepare wool for spinning or felting in 50 g (2 oz) batts.
The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. Adjustable drum height allows to set the gap size between the teeth of the cylinders. Nylon bearings ensure smooth turning, you will appreciate a quick release handle for the transport and the non-slipping rubber feet for working. The carder is strong and robust and it comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.
Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece. This ratio will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting. Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colours and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt.
Choose from fine (72 point per inch) coating of carding drums for finer wools & exotic fibres [ADCF] or superfine carding cloth - 120 point [ADCSF] - intended for finer wools & luxury fibres.
Drum carder
Packer Brush Cleaning Brush

The following accessories are included:

Two clamps for attachment to the labor board, the awl/doffer conveniently stored on the side to remove the tops of the drum, the packer brush and the cleaning brush placed under the entryway.

For owners of previously purchased carders without cleaning brush we recommend to use the Flick carder [FC].
The packer brush helps to get more fibres onto the large drum. It is so useful and demanded tool that it has become a standard part of the accessories and from around mid-2013 you can not buy a new carder without it from us. For earlier made carders ​there ​is possible to buy it [ADCPB].
It's kinder on the machine to wash fleece before carding. If in constant use, the machine needs regular oiling. You can see the drum carder in work on those pictures.
