An comprehensive instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz is included with all Louet drum carders.

Flexible, intermeshing teeth and enclosed gears make the compact Louet Roving Carder strong and reliable when it comes to carding.
The Louet drum carders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes (except on the Elite) are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
