This carder has deeper pins (1/2" long) and coarser carding cloth on the large drum to accommodate all the fun add-ins that make these art batts say "Spin me!"
Thick batts weighing more than 2 ounces can easily be made. The Brush Attachment makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making.
Advantages of a Motorized Carder:
- You save time. This is especially important if you are carding a lot of fibers for your own use or for others as a cottage industry;
- More control. Both hands are free so you can control how the fiber is being carded or blended;
- An enjoyable experience. If you have wrist, elbow and/or shoulder issues, you will find your carding experience painless and relaxing;
- Consistency. You will be able to card fibers at a consistent speed and make consistent batts.
