Formerly called the Roving Carder Junior. If you card fibres occasionally or card for small projects, this may be the carder for you. It has the same carding cloth and solid construction as the Standard Drumcarder, but is only 4″ wide. It is perfect to use to card fibers for small projects like for socks, hats and scarves or for felting. You can produce a 4″ wide batt that can be spun from when you remove the batt from the carder. The batt that is created is the size of a commercial roving. You can also thoroughly blend colors on this model. It is a great introduction to the world of drum carding.

The Junior Carder has a standard extra-fine cloth (72 teeth per square inch), suitable for a wide range of fibres.This carder includes a doffer brush, doffer pin and two table clamps to clamp it onto a sturdy table as well as an instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz.

Louet Drumcarders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. The drums of this carder are 19cm (7-1/2″) wide. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes (except for the Elite drumcarder) are enclosed to prevent fibres from entering the gear system.

For drumcarders it is common to mention the gear ratio that drives the licker-in when you rotate the large drum. For this drumcarder it is 3.8:1. However, what really counts for carding is the ratio of the surface speed of both drums. You get this by multiplying the gear ratio with the ratio of the diameters of the large drum and the licker-in, therefore, the surface speed ratio is 12:1 for the Roving Carder.
