Kromski hand carders are beautiful, affordable tools to fine tune your fibre preparation for spinning. Using hand carders you can prepare your fibre just how you like it, where that is a rolag or a simple carded preparation or beyond.
Kromski hand carders features & options:
These hand carders are sold in two different densities of carding cloth – 72 tpi and 108 tpi. Tpi refers to the teeth per inch. A higher density carding cloth (108 tpi in this case) is suitable for finer fibres, while 72 tpi is an excellent, mid-range suitable for a range of fibres and preparations. I would generally suggest people start with 72 tpi and then add 108 tpi as they have a specific need, for very fine fibres.
They are comfortable in hand and I would say an essential tool to progress in your spinning. Having fine control over fibre preparation is an important element in having mastery over your yarn.
We have these hand carders in walnut finish, and they come in the standard Kromski range of finishes (unfinished, clear lacquer, and mahogany finish). If you’d like a finish that we don’t have in stock, please feel free to contact us and we can get that in.
