Let's face it - not everyone needs or has room for a full size drum carder. Maybe you don't card fiber frequently or prefer carding for small projects/singles, If so, this is the carder for you. It has the same carding cloth and solid construction as the Standard Drum Carder, but is only 4" wide. With its smaller footprint, it is perfect in spaces that wouldn't accommodate a full sized carder. You can produce a 4" wide batt that can be spun from when you remove the batt from the carder. The batt that is created is the size of a commercial roving. You can also thoroughly blend colors on this model. It is a great introduction to the world of drum carding.

The Louet Drumcarders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes (except on the Elite) are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
