Ask a Question
  • Do you sell replacement cloth for the drum carders

    Hello and great question. 
    No, we do not sell replacement cloth for the drum carders.  The cloth is specifically manufactured for Ashford and only sold as part of the drum carder.  The reason for this is that it is fitted onto the drums under special tensioning using designed methods in the factory that result in a very durable drum carder.  Our customers often boast that their Ashford Drum Carder is still going 30 years after purchase.
