The Baby Brother Carder produces thick batts with extra long 5/8" long teeth which are made of a hardened and highly tempered steel wire that is remarkable for its longevity and uniformity.  This carder's cloth has been specifically designed for "art batts". The longer 72 tpi teeth with the special tooth pattern is best suited and specifically designed to allow the user to experience maximum versatility. The special fabrication and design of the cloth makes it ideal for handling a spectrum of fibres; normal fleeces, and not so normal fun additives; feathers, bits of cloth, etc. The makeup of the tooth itself is best suited for the process of evenly blending.  The narrower width makes a fun, manageable size batt that is ready to spin. Copper bushings are used for longevity of the carder.

You won't find better quality for the price, plus a limited lifetime warranty!  We will gladly supply the carder you require.
