The Louët Standard carder is a workhorse. With a width of 7 1/2 inches, fleeces of up to approx. 80 grams can be carded. Mixing colors and fibers is also easy on these carders.
We carry the 46 tpi (teeth per square inch) as it works well from coarser fleeces to blending and carding of finer fibers. The carding cloth is made of nickel-plated steel wire on a bed of cotton and natural rubber, which gives it a long life.
The frame of the carder is made of waterproof glued birch plywood with a white HPL top layer. The rollers are driven by a closed gear system. As a result, the carder requires very little maintenance and this keeps fiber from getting caught up in the gears.
The carder is delivered fully assembled so you can get started right away. Included are: instruction manual, the card booklet written by Deb Menz, cleaning brush, doffer pin and table clamps.
