Love spinning novelty yarns? Ashford have now created the ultimate carding machine to help you to do just that – the Wild Drum Carder. The extra long teeth allow a combination of materials to be carded into batts ready for spinning. Explore the possibilities and include different fibres, ribbons, fabric, paper, feathers, or strips of polyethene to create unique, textured blends.
The packer brush is adjustable and will control fine, low-crimp fibres and increase the size of the batt. The drum clearance is also adjustable which 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 doffer and cleaning brush are stored on the carder. The carder is strong but lightweight with hand hold for easy carrying. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use and includes a cleaning brush, clamps and awl.
