Drum Carder
« on: July 13, 2012, 05:31:32 pm »
I used a drum carder for the first time at my spinning group this week. Not only did I enjoy the process much more than hand carding it was quicker and produced a better batt/rolag. 
The outcome is that I have just ordered one for myself from Classis Carders,  in tulip wood. Now I can't wait for it to arrive  ;D
