Just the cloth, not the backing board. The picture is just to show how it fits onto a board.
This listing is a single piece of card cloth. See below for ordering for drum carders. It is a 3-ply cotton backing with red rubber covering and stainless steel wire set at 72 points per inch. It measures 12" x 12" (30cm x 30cm). This is the same grade as used on our Standard Hand Carders and our blending board
This wire setting is good for a large range of fibres. You can blend everything from British breed types to merino/silks and fine fibres
Stainless wire is superior as it much more durable than tin or nickel plated wire. No worries about rust or corrosion.
Making your own Board
We've been getting a lot of requests for this by those wishing to make their own blending board at home. If that's what you're planning then this card cloth will do the job perfectly.
You will need a substantial backing board, plywood is preferable. To get the slope a piece of wood of the appropiate thickness attached to the top one third region of the board will give an angled position.
When making a board or re-covering one the card cloth should never be glued as this locks the pins in place and looses the flexibility and carding action. We have been making all types of carders for the last 40 years and have never used glue as it would be so silly to ruin the flexibility.
Card cloth is normally fixed to the base board by staples or tacks along the edges only.
