Schacht Hand Carders
Schacht has built a lifetime of service into their hand carders. The paddles are specially shaped to protect the card cloth from wear, and they attach to the handles with tenons for superior strength.
Their wool carders are available in two gauges of carding cloth: 72 points per square inch (an all-purpose carding cloth) and 112 points per square inch (great for fine wool and downy fibers). These carders are available with curved or straight backs.
Their 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.
Their cotton carders are wider in length than our wool carders and slightly narrower in height. With 208 points per square inch, they’re excellent for cotton and other short, fine fibers. Available with curved or straight paddles.
Their flick carder, used to separate and tease fibers in preparation for spinning, has 72 points per inch on its cloth. It’s a single carder; work the fiber against a stiff piece of leather or heavy canvas.
