Combs, Mini – Louet Double-row
These handy Louet Double Row Mini Combs are a unique device which can be used for de-hairing and fine fiber combing. After combing, the fiber can be pulled into a sliver or spun straight from the combs. Tines are not overly sharp, to help ensure safety.
These Double Row Mini Combs are similar to the Single Row Mini Combs but produce a perfect slubless sliver from extremely fine fiber. Both mini combs are light on the wrist. They are made of ash with a lacquer finish.

Handcards, Ashford – Cotton 190 PPSI
Canadian orders only. NEW Autumn 2020. Price per set of two cards. Very fine handcards, explicitly designed for cotton and super-fine luxury fibres such as cashmere or angora. Ashford's new hand carders are lightweight and easy to use. Larger than the other Ashford hand cards with a carding cloth surface 265 x 90mm (10½ x 3½"). Made of solid unfinished Silver Beech hardwood with a comfortable turned handle to fit the hand. The carding cloth is durable stainless steel wire teeth set at 190 points per square inch (ppsi), held by a red rubber backing. The paddles have a nice curve to them, which makes for more comfortable and efficient carding. Minor assembly required, basically laying a strip of white glue and screwing on the two handles. Easily finished with a coat of urethane or varnish, if desired. Handcards are used for preparing fibre for spinning or felting. If you are mainly working with sheep wool fibre, these carders may not be your best choice. PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND

Handcards, Ashford – Small 72 PPSI
Canadian orders only. Price per set of two cards. A smaller version of the popular hand cards, ideal for felters wanting to blend colours or different fibres, or for spinners that only occasionally card fibre or fleece. We would recommend the standard-sized cards to spinners that card fleece regularly. With 72 teeth (points) per square inch (PPSI) these are suitable for carding most grades of wool and other fibres, and especially so if you are blending fibres or colours that have already been made into roving or top. Made of solid natural (unfinished) Silver Beech hardwood with a comfortable turned handle to fit the hand. The carding cloth is durable stainless steel wire teeth set at 72 points per square inch (PPSI), held by a red rubber backing. Carding head measures 7.5" by 3.5", about the same width as standard carders but not as deep. The paddles have a nice curve to them, which makes for more comfortable and efficient carding. Minor assembly required, basically laying a strip of white glue and screwing on the two handles. Easily finished with a coat of urethane or varnish, if desired. PRODUCT of NEW ZEALAND
