Item details

I'm currently offering free shipping in the continental US (and I'll cover the first $35 to Alaska or Hawaii) a pound of mixed fibers to get you started! The carder will ship from Ashford and your fiber will ship from me.

The Ashford carder now comes with the cleaning brush and packer brush standard. Hooray!

Ashford drum carder - fine
Fibre preparation made easy
- 2 ratios for control
- adjustable drums for all fibres
- lacquered and assembled
- clamps and awl included
- quick and easy to remove handle
- cards up to 50gm fibre


Card and blend fibres and colours quickly and efficiently.
This new, improved model has two ratios for even more flexibility and control when carding and blending. Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece. The controlled intake and carding will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting. Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colours and different fibre types consistently into an open and airy batt. Adjustable drum clearance - 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 carder is strong and robust with the body made from Silver Beech hardwood. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. Card 50gm (2oz) batt quickly and efficiently. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.
