I recommend this product

Excellent

I purchased this carding cloth because the price was less than what I’d seen elsewhere and it was the size and tpi I wanted. The picture shows the cloth rolled up and I was concerned about getting it flat enough to make my own blending board, but when it arrived it was packaged flat, was excellent cloth, and I am very pleased.

Good quality carding cloth

This carding cloth is sturdy and is just what I wanted. I will make a blending board with it. If you're a little handy, it's good way to go!

Product Details:

Overall Cloth Width: 9.5 inch

Wire Field: 8.5 inch

Border: 1/2 inch per side

Tip Length: 1.2 cm

Teeth Per Square Inch (TPI): 54, 72, 90, 120, 190

 

How to choose the correct Teeth Per Inch (TPI):

The carding cloth’s teeth per inch (tpi) measures how densely the teeth are packed together. That density determines how much texture of roving is removed and how much color is blended in a single pass. The higher the number, the finer the carding cloth and the more smooth and blended the fiber becomes. 

Think of tpi as it applies to a hairbrush: If you have fine hair, you use a brush with lots of bristles close together. This gives a smooth finish. When you have curly hair, you use a wide-tooth comb or a brush with stiff bristles that are far apart. These bristles leave the curls together rather than separating and smoothing them out.

Although coarse and textured fibers are best carded on low-tpi carders, fine fibers can also be carded on equipment with less dense carding cloth. One way to match up your cloth with your fibre is by paying attention to the micron counts (approximate) of your fleece. Let’s consider anything between 18-24 micron is ‘fine’, that 24-32 Micron fibers are ‘medium’ and 33+ micron fibers are ‘coarse

  • Fine - tpi of 120< OR 90< for a blending board(Merino, Alpaca, Cormo) To card smooth, lofty batts and rolags with little to no texture or blend fibers and colors together thoroughly. Fine fibers are best used on high-tpi carding equipment. To card more textured or coarser fiber on a tool with a high tpi measurement, it is important to pick open the fiber first.  
  • Medium - tpi around 72(Finn, Jacob) For most uses, including carding most wool.  It can accommodate a range of fiber diameters, create somewhat textured fiber preparations, and blend and smooth moderately fine batts.
  • Coarse - tpi 50>: (Lincoln, Leicester)To keep lots of texture in the fibers and blend loosely, this will give you a chunky, textured batt. If you are carding multiple kinds of fiber together, you will get bold variations on a single pass.
