A pair of 9" hand carders in your choice of teeth/inch. Choose 54, 72 or 90 TPI from drop-down box at upper right.
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 and in 5 densities from 54 TPI to 190 TPI for the fiberarts community.
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.
I carry the Howard Mini Carders, Student Carders and the Standard Carders, in all TPIs, as well as their Blending Boards in both regular and very FINE TPI. . Just search my "Hand & Drum Carders" section and/or "Blending Board" section.
