Golden Fleece carding cloth is 72 tpi, the same as your standard wool hand cards. If you want the possibility of producing art yarns, then you don't want a cloth that is too fine. Save some money, and prepare your own blending board using this cloth. This piece is 30 x 30cm (or 12 by 12 inches) with a vulcanized rubber backing.  There is a space around the edge of the pad to allow it to be tacked to a board. Nickel-plated wire is used.

Blending cloth has longer teeth, a different, more open tooth pattern, and the finish on the tip of the wire is such that it is less likely to hurt your hand since there is so much more contact using a blending board than hand or drum carders.

Regular carding cloth has a shorter tooth in comparison to blending cloth, a more closed tooth pattern, and the finish on the tip is a bit more aggressive.

The special fabrication and design of blending cloth makes it ideal for handling a spectrum of materials; normal fleeces, and not-so-normal fun additives; feathers, bits of cloth, etc. On top of that, the makeup of the tooth itself is best suited for the process of evenly blending, and uniformly removing the fibre.

Instructions for making a blending board included.
