The Wild carder has been specifically designed for today’s fabulous, fun and funky art yarns. The extra long 72ppsi teeth allow you to include differing fibres, fabric, ribbons, feathers, paper and novelties to create unique blends. The packer brush is adjustable and will control fine, low-crimp fibres and increase the size of the batt. The drum clearance is also adjustable which allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fibre.
All nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn. The card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life.
The doffer and cleaning brush are stored on the carder. The carder is strong but lightweight with hand hold for easy carrying. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it slipping. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Is Wild carder made by Ashford and would it be suitable for alpaca

    Hello and thank you for your great question. 

    The Wild Carder is most certainly an Ashford Product.  

    The Wild carder will most certainly process your Alpaca Fleece but may require to be passed through a couple of times before you achieve the look and feel you are after.  The Super Fine carder is more specifically designed for the likes of Alpaca Fleece but you will still be able to card with the 72dpi the Wild offers. The Wild carder has extra-long teeth which allows the carder to take in fibres with texture such as locks, fabric strips, threads, feathers, paper and other novelty and wacky art batts.

    I hope this helps. We have also done a blog on this to help consumers find the right carder for them: https://www.auntjenny.com.au/blogs/news/which-carding-option-is-right-for-me?_pos=15&_sid=2dcdbcff3&_ss=r

    Thank you
