These Blending Brushes are great for pressing your fiber deeper into your hand or drum carder or blending board. This helps eliminate the "fly away" look, creating tighter, smoother batts or rolags. These are also great "cleaners" for your Blending boards, hand or drum carders, cleaning out all the tiny bits of fluff that can get left behind when you've pulled off your batt or roulag. Blending Brushes come with standard or fine cloth. Listing is for one blending brush. Please specify whether you want standard or fine - choose from drop down box at upper right.
Measures 8 1/4" long X 1 1/2" wide.
Weighs approximately 3.6 oz
Standard are over 1" (approximately 1 1/8 inches) and work best for medium to coarse fiber.
Fine are over 3/4" long (approximately 13/16 inch) and work best for the finer fiber types.
All Howard Brush products are handcrafted in York, Maine. Their Hand Cards are manufactured to the exact specifications developed by the founders of the Howard Brothers Company in 1866 and will stand up against all the big name dealers of fiber processing equipment (many for which I'm a dealer), in quality craftsmanship and a better price! Each card is formed using select woods, with a gently curved compromise between flat and strongly curved cards, allowing for both styles of carding action. The handles are ergonomically designed to shape and fit, easy to orient, sturdily attached to the carder back and finished with a warm hand-rubbed sheen.
