May 18/22 - currently in stock. FREE SHIPPING within Canada! Canadian orders only. We have this item shipped directly from the Ashford Canada warehouse, generally within one or two business days. This is the SUPER FINE version of Ashford's popular carder, with teeth on the main drum set at 120 PPSI (points per square inch). Particularly suitable for carding fine fibres, such as alpaca, angora, dog hair, llama, fine Merino and Polwarth. Ashford carders offer two carding ratios: 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. An sdjustable 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 as well as two clamps to prevent it from slipping. Card 50 gm (2oz ) batts quickly and efficiently. It comes mostly assembled and lacquered, add on the handle and it's ready to use. A short Awl/doffer (4 inches) and carding instructions are included. Batt size 55cm x 23cm (22ins x 9ins). Carder weight only 5kg (11 Lb). INCLUDES: packer brush, cleaning brush, doffer, clamps PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND
