Over the years we've sold thousands of our Wingham Hand Carders, an essential piece of kit if you're wanting to prepare your own wools at home. They're perfect for handspinners, allowing you to card your own wools and prepare them for spinning. With a little practise it's easy to make rolags: carded wool, rolled into tubes and ready to be spun. Carders are also great for creating your personal blends, to your own specification and exclusive to you.

"What does 72ppi mean?"
PPI stands for Points Per Inch, and is the number of staples found in a 1 inch x 1 inch square of the cloth. 72ppi is a great choice for the majority of wools that are used in handspinning and feltmaking and is by far the most popular choice. We do offer coarser and finer options, but if you're unsure then we'd suggest going for the 72ppi.
