Ashford 2 Speed Drum Carder 72 point (fine)
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.
Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colours and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt.
The Drum Carder has adjustable drum clearance so you can change it to suit the fibre. 50gm of carded fibre can be produced per batt. The card cloth is rust-proof.
It comes assembled with a Danish Oil finish.
