Wool Carding

The 1920 carding machine produces large wool batts

180 cm x 60 cm

 I hand wash and carded my fleece individually with care to produce the various shades of Gotland from pale grey to charcoal black. Beautifully soft and light,

Fine wool’s from primitive breeds produce wonderful wool batts of different colours and texture for hand spinning or felt making.

I also produce wool batts from different British Sheep breeds when available such as Jacob / Portland/ Shetland / Hebridean / Mule / Also Alpaca blends

 Artisan Wool Carding service of your own washed fleece

minimum weight 1 kilo of one natural colour washed fleece

Cost is £23 per kg incoming weight free return postage.

Blending of different wool’s / natural colours possible

please contact me to discuss you requirements.

We are unable to card very long wool’s such as Wensleydale or the tight curls of BFL .

Fleece must be ready washed, clean, free of any debris and no felted wool

If you can pull it apart I can carded it.

I recommend using Surcare liquid soap and that ideally fleece should be washed asap after shearing; this prevents deterioration in the fibres and means you can store the wool safely.

Please email me or phone to discuss possibilities.
