Our versatile drum carder 54 TPI excels in carding and blending coarse wool and other fibers. It precisely aligns fibers, priming them for spinning and is a valuable tool for fleece preparation in crafts like felting.
Crafted with precision, it ensures a smooth and quiet operation thanks to inserted bearings and an industrial poly drive belt. The birch plywood frame measures 10” x 24” (25 x 60cm), and the carding cloth, made of highly tempered steel, guarantees long-lasting performance.
The drum carder 54 TPI yields batts sized at 7.5” x 24” (19 x 60cm). Upon receiving it, simply attach the handle, and you’re ready to go.
