Paradise Fibers – Blending Board - Small Size
The Paradise Fibers Blending Board is the Ultimate fiber preparation tool. This Blending board features include: a 3 position keel, very sticky rubber feet on both the Board itself and on the bottom of the keel (so it can’t move around on a table). We are offering them in all sizes of the carding cloth that we carry. Overall it is 15 ¼ by 10.5 inches with a full 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 inch working area. Consisting of high grade laminated wood, this thing is tough.
Wood will be either Laminated Alder Wood or Grade a-b Veneered Plywood.
For absolute control of your blending, ultra-consistent fiber preparation, and to create the most awesome rolags with repeatability that’s unmatched.
Comes with a ¼”, 3/8” and ½” Maple dowel for removing your puni or rolags. and a 2” and 3” standard chip brush to help draft or apply fiber. Easily creates ½ ounce batts, top, or rolags, which all depends on your choice of fiber.
We also make a Mini Carder or Blending Brush of sorts, that works perfectly with these boards: Blending Brush
Anybody who "knows" Paradise Fibers Fiber tools, will tell you they are beautifully built, paying attention to details and durability.
A mark is taken off because my blending board could stand to be sanded for smoothness better. I went across it with a fingernail buffer. I followed that up with wood butter as I found the board quite dry. I don't particularly care for the brushes included. They seem cheap because when used the bristles keep shedding. Since I kept at using it it's since stopped but, that's a mark against them as well. I had better (cheap) brushes on hand and added one for using going forward. As an aside, everything was packed very well and the box was marked fragile due to my purchase of the blending board being included. Having said all that. I always wanted a blending board and this one fits the space I had available to house it and it's not too small or too big for me to do what I want to accomplish. It's been fun playing with it and hard to put it aside to actually spin the fiber batts and rolags I've made using it.
Again, Paradise Fibers brings great quality products to fiber enthusiasts. I love the blending board, and delivery and packaging were great.
