Game Changer!

This is EVERYTHING! I got the 72 TPI and it came today! I was so nervous to do such a high ticket price online, but this was a great experience. Not only did it arrive 2 days earlier than anticipated, it was super easy to jump right in and start carding! I started carding with dog brushes (hey, ya gotta start somewhere!) and now that I have this Im NEVER going back!

Ashford Drum Carder is a Great Choice

I saw cheaper drum carders but if I added up the price for the additional packer brush, cleaning brush, clamps, and doffer, I would have paid even more and this is a higher quality carder. It comes assembled..all I had to put on was the handle. It comes with all the items mentioned and is ready to use. I read all reviews on drum careers and Ashford got great feedback from users. I am very happy with this purchase. I am new to working with wool, but this is so easy to use, I felt like a pro.

Product Details

FINE 72 PPSI - BACKORDERED WITH ESTIMATED SHIPPING DATE OF 18-sept

Fiber preparation is made easy with Ashford Drum Carders. Card and blend fibers and colors quickly and efficiently with this easy to use carder sporting two ratios, 6:1 & 4:1, for even more flexibility and control when carding and blending fleeces, slivers, and more.

Adjustable drum clearance allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fiber. The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. 

The all nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn while the solid Silver Beech hardwood body makes this carder strong and robust. Handy rubber feet prevent it from slipping. 

Drum Carder comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.

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, colors and different fiber types consistently into an open and airy batt. 

Card 50gm (2oz) batt quickly and efficiently.
