Welcome to Traditions Fiber Arts.
I am an Ashford dealer, raise angora goats and am addicted to anything related to fiber arts.
Ashford now has several carders to choose from, depending on your needs and they type of batt you want to produce.
This listing is for the wild drum carder used to make art batts to spin art yarn. It has a carding width of 10cm or 4 inches. The wild carder will card 40 gram (1 1/2 oz) batts. The carding cloth has extra long 72 point teeth.
The carder has a carding ratio of 6:1 for controlled blending, and adjustable drums to suit all fibers.
It has a built in adjustable packer brush. Cleaning brush, clamps and doffer are included.
The carder is assembled but not lacquered.
Extra accessories that can be ordered are the packer brush and cleaning brush.
The carder retails for $540. YOU WILL GET FREE SHIPPING IN THE LOWER 48 AND FIBER FOR YOUR NEW CARDER.
