We can order in carders from Ashford or Louet, and sometimes we have one in stock. Here in the shop we use an Ashford Standard drum carder with the 72ppsi (points per square inch) cloth and we love it. You’re welcome to drop by and try it out!

Drum Carder, Ashford – Packer Brush
Designed specifically to fit the fine or coarse-cloth Ashford 20cm (8-inch) Drum Carder. This kit is simple to install and doesn't require any special tools nor holes to be drilled. It has two metal holders that fit over the small drum, with a nylon-bristled brush that fits in notches and can be swung down to brush the large drum or moved up and out-of-the-way when taking off batts.
We use a fine-cloth Ashford Drum Carder here in our shop, and we love this brush! It helps you to pack more fibre onto the drum by smoothing it as you go. Ashford suggests it also reduces fly-away of finer or no-crimp fibres such as bamboo. Neither of us has any notable handyman skills but it was really quite simple to install.
NOTE: As of summer 2013 Ashford now includes this packer brush on all of their various sizes of drum carders.
