The Wingham Blending Board is simple, quick and effective way of making your own fibre blends at home.
We have designed this board to have all the fittings needed to get the best out of blending and carding.
To blend fibres
Place your mix of fibres onto the board and with the reverse carder provided brush the fibre down into the wire. Continue layering fibre onto the wire until a good covering is made. Dont overdo it as the resulting batt can be too thick.
It can also function as a carding board if used along with a full size hand carder. Simply place washed fleece fibres to be carded onto the board and use a full sized hand carder to card with. When fully carded use the dowel rolag sticks to remove the fibre from the board as with the instructions above.
At the rear of the board you'll find a supporting brace that can be fixed in three different positions, adjusting the working angle that the board sits at when table mounted. For storage it can be removed completely.
Two clamps are supplied to keep everything sturdy and in place when working on a table top, giving a stable working platform to create your blend.
The carding area covers 30cm x 30cm and is made of the same specification card cloth that we use for our Wingham Hand Carders. This 72 PPI cloth is suitable for most wool types that you'll be using, though if you aren't sure if it's right for what you intend on using then feel free to contact us in advance.
Weight: 2.8kilos, a good weight to give stability
Guarantee. If the card cloth becomes worn out which is unlikely we will replace it at cost.
It can be used as a carding board by using a full sized hand carder against it.
