These are the greatest tools for making drum carding easier and faster. Why You Can't Live Without Your Strauch Fiber Spinning Accessories:
DOFFER/DOUBLE DOFFER BRUSHES: (3rd & 4th pics) Used to clean the large drum after you have removed the batt. It looks similar to a "Flicker" but with different points. Small Doffers are 2" wide and 4 1/2" long. The pads are 1 1/2" wide with 1/2" long points spaced 72 per square inch. Large Doffers are 3 1/2" wide, almost twice that of the standard one supplied with all our drum carders (shown above). Makes removal of the batt, especially from the doublewide drum, much faster. The pads are 3" wide with 1/2" long points spaced 72 per square inch.Use the center portion of the Doffer brush to contact the curve of the large drum. Starting at the seam, swipe the Doffer brush down the drum in the same direction as the teeth on the drum. Continue across the width of the drum. Slowly rotate the drum backwards as you use the brush to clean the entire drum. Choose from two sizes. Sold Singly.
FLICKER CARDER: Used to tease out the ends of fleece that are sometimes matted from water or mud. Curved to facilitate the movement of teasing/cleaning lock ends. Measures 2 1/4" X 4 5/8" high. Sold singly.
