Pair of 9" carders with 120 TPI, for medium to fine fiber types such as merino, alpaca & angora rabbit fur.
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 hand 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. These traditionally made hand cards are offered in Standard or Student size (this listing is for the Student, shown in the pictures) and in 5 densities from 54 TPI to 190 TPI for the fiberarts community. This listing is for 120 TPI cards.
These cards measure 9" wide X 4.25" high, with 5" handles, for an overall measurement of approximately 9 X 9. This creates a very comfortable movement for creating a nice, wide batt.
Listing for your choice of 54 TPI, 72 TPI or 90TPI is here:
