The Louet Standard Drum Carder. These robust drum carders have a medium clothing for making light work of preparing fleece and blending fibre for spinning or feltmaking. The drum is 19cm wide, includes two table clamps and one doffer. 72 tpi
The fibres are fed a small amount at a time into the drum carder from the top, taking care not to feed in too much at a time. When the depth of the combs are covered and the turning of the handle becomes heavier, stop adding fibres.
To remove the batt, run a doffer pin (or a knitting needle) under the fibres and along the seam of the drum. Carefully lift away the fibres, slowly turning the drum in the opposite direction.
The drum carder has a hard white coating which is easy to wipe clean and gives the drum carder a modern, contemporary look and feel.
