Drum Carder - 8inch / 20cm Ashford 72 ppsi

Product Information
This package now includes the packer brush and cleaning brush...
... Ashford 8" drum carder, now with 2-speed ratios. Standard cloth suitable for all fibres. Comes fully finished and assembled, ready for carding or blending those luxurious combinations of silk, merino, alpaca and more.    ... 

Fine 72ppsi cloth.

The Drum Carder cards and blends fibres for felting. The drum on the carder holds 50gms (2 oz) of fibre. When the fibre is lifted from the carder you will have a "batt" of fibre ready for felting. The batt measure 53cm x 19cm (22 x 7.5 inches)

New 2 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.

Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colours and different fibre 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 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 carder is strong and robust with the body made from Silver Beech hardwood. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. Card 50 gm (2oz ) batt quickly and efficiently. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use. Awl/doffer, 2 clamps and carding instructions are included.  Weight only 5kg (11lb)

Remember, this is a carder and will not remove all, or at times,  any, vegetable matter present.

Ideas for Use
  1. Card fleece into large 50gm (2 oz) batts.
  2. Blend colours - natural blacks with dyed blue looks stunning!
  3. Blend different fibres - wool and mohair, wool and silk - experiment!
  4. 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.
