The Clemes & Clemes 8” fine tooth drum carder has been the standard of the industry since it was introduced in 1978. Professional spinners, schools, guilds, and hobbyists have long sought the quality of carding that is possible with this carding machine.
The oak frame has an attractive shape with smooth rounded edges and lacquer finish for years of durable service. The wooden tray allows easy feeding of the fibers. The carders are completely assembled and ready to use right out of the box.
The card clothing is available in fine tooth and coarse tooth. Most spinners require fine teeth on their carders. Almost any type of fiber can be carded with our fine tooth carder. We recommend coarse teeth on a carder only when carding a coarser fiber and a rougher texture is desired.
