Wild Drum Carder
The Wild carder has been specifically designed for today's fabulous, fun and funky art yarns!! The extra long 72 point teeth allow you to include differing fibers, fabric, ribbons, feathers, paper and novelties to create one of a kind blends. The packer brush is adjustable and will control fine, low-crimp fibers 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 fiber.
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 durability and a long life. The doffer and cleaning brush are stored on the carder. The Ashford Wild Drum Carder is strong but lightweight and has a hand hold for easy carrying as well as rubber feet to prevent it slipping. The Ashford Wild Drum Carder comes assembled and lacquered ready to use - no additional assembly required.
Ashford equipment that we do not keep in-stock in-shop ships to the Wild Hand shop for Local Pick-up (FREE) or directly to your home for a flat Ashford Shipping rate determined based on your location and order size. Shipping usually takes 1-2 weeks from the time the order is fulfilled. Not all Ashford products are in-stock at all times; you may contact the shop for the most up-to-date estimated shipping date before placing your order and/or we will contact you after you place your order to confirm the ship date based on Ashford's most up-to-date information.
