Compact Classic Carder

This carder is ideal if storage is a problem or you want a carder that is easy to carry – perfect if you take your carder with you ‘out and about’. It has a 9:1 drum ratio and a surface speed ratio of 20:1 which will distribute the fibre at a greater degree on the drum. This improves the blending but does not affect the way in which the drum carder cards.
