Clemes & Clemes Blending Board & Brush- See Video Below!
The Clemes & Clemes Blending Board is a redesigned fiber processing tool for achieving controlled blending, consistent novelty fiber preparation, and fiber placement control. The Blending Board gives yarn designers complete control to produce rolags with repeatable patterns.
Wool, mohair, alpaca - virtually any type of fiber can be precisely prepared using the Blending Board. But the fun does not stop there - feathers, Angelina, dog hair, shredded silk fabric, cut yarn, odds and ends from other projects - your imagination is the only limiting factor when working with the Blending Board. Even long and short fibers can be blended together effectively. Fiber can also be pulled directly off the Blending Boards in a ‘top’-like preparation.
Blending Boards are not a replacement for drum carders. Perfect for workshops, the slick design allows a quick "pack and go” convenience. The 11" x 11" blending area with 72 teeth per inch allows you to create half-ounce or larger batts, rolags or top depending on the fiber and materials used. The overall size of 17" x 12.5" x 5" breaks down to 17"x 12.5" x 2" for storage. Dual position keel allows for use on the edge of a table or in your lap - at any angle you prefer. Made of Cherry hardwood with two coats of lacquer.
- Cherry Dowel - for removing blended rolags.
- Stainless Steel Starter Rod - for assistance with creating rolags.
- Cherry Brush - for applying fiber.
Product Review By: Taevia Magee
This blending board is a functional and beautiful product. Crafted out of cherry, the board is very sturdy and the wood is nicely finished. The area for the carding cloth is a generous size at 11x11, which is a good size to make long spinning rolags and has plenty of room to play with making stripes! The stand makes it easy to use in your lap or on a table and the brush is a good stiffness to pack in the fiber you place on the board without damaging it or moving it out of place.
