Mini Carder or Blending Brush. This is a great tool for pushing fibers
into your Blending Board or Drum Carder. Also a great tool for flicking open
locks when hand carding. With the teeth one way you're forcing the fiber into
the blending board or drum carder. (away from you). The beauty of this action
is that you can press your fibers exactly where you placed them on your
blending board or drum carder. With the teeth the other way (towards you), it
has a carding effect. The teeth being towards you is basically carding.
We're offering this tool in two handle lengths and for great reason.
Through our research, We found out some would like a longer handle for the
ease of use it provides. Some may not be able to hold a shorter handle. the
Shorter handle used for more precise work. Both have great rocking motion,
although the shorter handle makes this task much easier.
Would work great for fiber artists of all skill levels.
Made out of Solid Maple The overall size is 2 1/4" by 2 3/4" and the
handle is exposed 2 1/4" for the short handled one and 4 1/4" on the longer.
The tines on these are a little stiffer than our blending boards.
As you can see we're offering them with many different teeth per inch TPI.

I love this handy tool and I not only use it for it's intended purpose, I use it to gently open wool locks!
The brushes that came with the blending board did a good job, but this tool helped really even out the fiber on the board even more. Well worth it!
I have used the mini carder/blending brush--works like a charm. Thank you Ellie--you were a great help. I am currently spinning my first rolag.
