Schacht has built a lifetime of service into their hand cards. They have a small lip molded into the rear edge of the paddle to protect the carding cloth from becoming worn and the handles have been precisely tenoned into the paddles for superior strength.
Two gauges of wool carding cloth are available for the wool hand cards: 72 psi (Points per Square Inch), which is an all-purpose carding cloth, and 112 psi, great for finer wools, alpaca, and downy fibers.
The Schacht mini carders are a pint-sized version of our curved
wool cards. Their light weight and smaller size make them quite
popular. Available only with curved backs and 72 psi carding cloth.
Available with curved backed paddles.
A 72 psi flick carder is also available.
Hand Carders are priced and sold in pairs, Flick carders are sold individually.
