Classic Carder Jumbo Wide
The Jumbo Wide Classic Carder is the largest carder in our range and will produce a batt weighing up to 150g (5.3oz) when used with a Finishing Brush and Secondary Brush. All Classic Carders use the difference between the drum speeds (ratio) to card, allowing the fibre to be gently separated over the storage drum pins and as they do not mesh they are not harsh on delicate fibres. This means that there is very little friction and the handle turns very easily. There is more momentum in the larger carders making them just as easy to turn as the standard carders.

72 tpi is your standard cloth, perfect for most breeds of sheep fleece and for colour blending. If you're unsure of what you'll be mainly carding always plump for the 72tpi, it's a great all rounder.
48 tpi is for COARSE wools and wild blending of crazy textures and inclusions
120tpi is for FINE wools
What additional items should I think about?
I really strongly recommend the Classic Carder Finishing Brush which sits on the back of the carder and pushes down all the fluff being carded. This allows you to fit more on, making your carder more economical and the slightly more compressed batts (still very light and airy) seem to come off cleaner.
I also recommend a Porcupine Quill for removing stray bits and cleaning your carder without damaging the tines
