The Classic Drum Carder is basically the same model Louet has been delivering for the past 20 years. Like all of Louet's carders the Classic is made of laminated birch and has a hard white coating. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth, as on all Louet carders, are made of high grade plated steel wire and the gearboxes are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
The drums of this carder are 19 cm (7 1/2") wide and use a fine cloth of 46 teeth per square inch, so you can easily card wool and other coarse fibers. The surface speed ratio is 9:1.
Doffer brush and doffer pin are included as are two table clamps to clamp it onto a sturdy table. An instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz is included.
