The design of the Wingham Handcarders has evolved over the years, culminating in a great piece of equipment that won't break the bank.
The backs are made of birch ply, for strength. The turned handle is hardwood fitted at an angle that allows a good natural surface to surface contact. The handle design gives a good comfortable grip in the hand.
In general we recommend the Standard Carders for most wools and animal fibres. These have the card cloth set at 72 Points Per Inch (PPI): any more and the friction between the 2 carders can make them hard to use. For finer fibres such as cashmere and silk we offer the Fine Carders, with the cloth at 108 PPI.
