You don’t have to have sheep to need Wool Carders! And Kromski has some of the most beautifully finished carders you've ever seen. They come in choice of all their beautiful finishes: clear finish, Walnut and Mahogany finishes, just as their wheels do. First picture is that of the Mahogany finish. Second is of a clear finish and the third is of the Walnut finish. Choose 108 TPI for finer fibers such as cotton, angora or silks. 72 TPI is better for medium to coarser wool types. This fiber tool is ideal for blending small amounts of fiber at a time, but they are built to last through the task of a full “Sheep to Shawl” project as well.
When you purchase a set of Kromski Hand Carders, you open up a whole new world of fiber preparation. Blending fiber is a great way to add more variety to your spinning stash. When you blend you can add strength to your yarn with the addition of nylon or bamboo. Angora or Alpaca adds a beautiful halo. And there are plenty of fun sparkly products on the market that will give your yarn some pizzazz. Of course, it can also help you to create a custom color that will be unique to your project. The color combinations are endless.
Something else to consider when carding fiber is the amount of actual blending you want to do. Minimal passes with the Hand Carders will result in areas of distinct color, whereas a more homogenized color can be achieved by a more thorough blending.
