Ashford Hand Carders
Ashford's hand carders are used in pairs to prepare fiber for spinning, or blend fibers or colors in the traditional way. Lightweight and easy to carry, they produce small rolags ready for spinning. All varieties have a stainless steel wire and rubber backing.
Classic hand carders have a comfortable round handle and flat carding surface, and are available with fine 72 point or superfine 108 point.
A smaller version of the Classic is also available in 72 point or 108 point, for a lightweight, portable option.
Student hand carders are made with a strong one-piece plywood back, available with fine 72 point.
Flick carders are used singly, rather than in pairs, and are great as a first carder for preparing individual staples of fleece wool. The turned handle is comfortable to hold and use, made of durable Silver Beech hardwood. The flick carder can also be used for cleaning the drum carder. Available with fine 72 point.
