The right tool for the job...

Once word gets out that you’re a Spinner you may have found that fleece donations just start to breed in your stash. Or perhaps you have an animal or two on your own hobby farm? Well, this big boy is perfect for saving you time processing large quantities of fibre, up to 100grams, in one go!

The 72 point carding cloth can handle a wide range of microns from fine combed mill tops to courser locks and texture-adding fibres making it a great all-rounder for those who like to experiment. For very fine fibres you can do a second pass through the carder for beautifully smooth results and for textured art batts you can feed larger chunks of textured fibres straight onto the large drum.
Of course Ashford thinks of everything and includes a packer brush, cleaning brush, doffer and clamps which means you can use it straight out of the box with no fluffing around trying to locate the extra bits and bobs you need.
