Handcards, Louet – Regular 46 PPSI


Price per set of two cards. All-purpose handcards that will handle the majority of fibres. For very fine fibres such as Alpaca or cotton, we recommend finer handcards.

Made of unfinished hardwood. Medium carding cloth with zinc-plated teeth set at 46 points per square inch (PPSI). Teeth are 10mm high (3/8″). The paddles have a nice curve to them, which makes for more comfortable and efficient carding. Already assembled. NOTE Louet calls these hand cards REGULAR. Compared to other brands such as Ashford, the carding cloth is closer to what others in the industry might call coarse.

Handcards are used for preparing fibre for spinning or felting. Many spinners use these to prepare washed fleece into puffy rolags. Excellent for blending together different kinds and/or colours of fibre as well. When carding fleece it’s good to do this over top of a drop sheet since lots of loose vegetation may fall out during the process, depending on the fibre.
