Louët Hand Cards

£60.00
£54.00

I love a carded fibre preparation for spinning lofty, woollen yarns. The carding process opens up the bunch of fibre and introduces air, but doesn’t arrange them in absolute parallel like combs. This allows for spinning an airy, insulating yarn.

We offer hand cards with two different teeth density, suitable for different fibres. I find these hand carders ergonomic and easy on my wrists as they’re nice and light and the paddle portion is curved. I find that that allows for a smooth motion without wrenching my elbows.

I love a carded fibre preparation for spinning lofty, woollen yarns. The carding process opens up the bunch of fibre and introduces air, but doesn’t arrange them in absolute parallel like combs. This allows for spinning an airy, insulating yarn.

We offer hand cards with two different teeth density, suitable for different fibres. I find these hand carders ergonomic and easy on my wrists as they’re nice and light and the paddle portion is curved. I find that that allows for a smooth motion without wrenching my elbows.

We carry hand carders with two different density of teeth on the carding cloth. 46tpi (teeth per inch) is for most standard wools) and the high density 110tpi for fine wools, cashmere, cotton, and other fine fibres.
