Feedback on this little gem is wonderful so far - "Great little tool! A must for spinners!"
Carding and combing are pre-spinning treatments to align the fibers which enables you to spin fibers more easily. For the technique of felting or making woolen blankets, carding is essential. Combing straightens the fibers more than carding. This difference determines the character of the spun thread: worsted or woolen-spun.
The flicker is a handy tool used to tease locks of fiber in preparation for spinning. The curved paddle of tulip wood is 6 X 10 cm (2 3/8" X 4") and has a less flexible cloth than the other cards. This allows felted ends of the locks to be straightened out. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Lou?t carders are made of high grade plated steel wire.
