Our carders are handmade for us by a woodworker in New York using cherry and contrasting walnut. The smooth rounded handle is at a slight angle and incorporated into the body of the carder making it strong as well as comfortable. The body is further rounded for easy rolling motion. Each one has its own character from the wood color and grain and is finished with Tung Oil to accent the wood's beauty. The cloth is 70 TPI - a nice weight for the most variety of fibers.
Carder body is 9" x 4" with an 8"x3" carding cloth. Handle is 5.5." You will get a pair of carders when purchasing this item.
Once I get how to really use them, they will be amazing! Beautiful pieces of art in themselves!
Beautiful 2 toned wood body, 8" wide, long handles are comfortable and have great balance. Really well made, durable high end leather mat with metal teeth. These hand carders are art in themselves. Made to last a lifetime. Having the correct tools are so important. And these open up blending your own colors or straightening up your wool bits. Start one piece at a time, and build your tool kit. These are a true treat! Very special, and yes, worth the investment!
(Say yes to yourself, you won't regret this purchase!)
Thanks so much for the positive feedback! Just to clarify, carding cloth may have been leather in the past but now it uses manufactured materials. We are so pleased that you are enjoying them!
