The Wild carder has been specifically designed for today’s fabulous, fun and funky art yarns.
 
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 a handhold for easy carrying. The carder has rubber feet to prevent it from slipping. It comes assembled and lacquered ready to use. As well as being suitable for all your regular carding requirements.

Wild about my new carder!

30 March 2019
This bit of kit is fantastic! All the packing was recyclable, the Wild Drum Carder was easy to assemble - took me about 2 minutes. This is my first time using a drum carder and it couldn't have been easier. I fed my prepared Alpaca fibre in and lifted off a perfect batt. I can't wait to try some pieces of thread, ribbon and Merino for some really fancy effects. Thank you, I love it!
