Tools for preparing or blending your fibres ready for spinning into a hand spun yarn or to make felt fabric. The hand carders are available in a number of sizes and designed for use with fine through to coarse fibres. Use the hand carders or a drum carder to blend the fibres ready for making into a rolag for spinning or into a batt for feltmaking. Synthrapol and wool combs make light work of cleaning and preparing raw fleece ready for spinning or felting.

The carders are available with a choice of carding cloth (72 tpi for wool fibres and general carding, through to 110 tpi for fine fibres such as cotton) and the strong wool combs are designed perfectly for preparing fleece. Also included is Synthrapol, the best solution for degreasing wool in cool water and hence preventing felting.
