These new, improved Ashford Drum Carders has 2 speeds for even more flexibility and control when carding and blending. Use the 6:1 ratio to prepare your fleece. The controlled intake and carding will produce a smooth even batt ready for blending, spinning or felting.

Use the 4:1 ratio to blend sliver, colors and different fiber types consistently into an open and airy batt.


Adjustable drum clearance allows you to set the teeth distance for total control of your fiber. All nylon bearings ensure it is light and easy to turn. The carding cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life. Ashford Drum Carders are strong and robust with the body made from Silver Beech hardwood.

The carders have rubber feet to prevent it slipping. Card 50gm (2oz) batt quickly and efficiently.


All Ashford 2 Speed Drum Carders are assembled and lacquered ready to use. Complete with brush attachment, cleaning brush, doffer (for taking the fibers off the drum), clamps and instructions.
