Hand Carders

Schacht hand carders are built for a lifetime of processing/prepping fleece and fiber for spinning. The paddles are specially shaped to protect the carding cloth from wear, and they attach to the handles with tenons for superior strength. They come in a variety of sizes and points-per-square-inch (psi) carding cloth options!

***Note: Medium carders are generally available in-stock for immediate purchase/shipping. All other styles are drop-ship only.***

Mini - small and lightweight, perfect for sampling or taking on the go. Available only with 72 psi. 

Medium & Fine - Medium has 72 psi and is perfect for most wools, Fine has 112 psi and is great for very fine wools, alpaca, and other downy fibers. 

Cotton - these carders are wider and slightly narrower than the Medium & Fine. With 208 psi they are perfect for cotton and other very fine fibers such as angora or cashmere. 

Flick - used to separate and tease fibers to prep for techniques like lock spinning. Comes in 72 psi and as single carder; you will need to work with it against a piece of heavy canvas or leather.
