Louët has five different drumcarders: the Classic, Standard, Junior (or Roving), Elite and Electric drumcarder. They are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. The drums of the carders are 19 cm (7 1/2") wide, except for the drum of the Junior (10 cm (4") wide). In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louët carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes, except for the Elite drumcarder, are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.
The Classic Drum Carder is the same model we have been delivering for the past 20 years.
The Classic and Electric drumcarder have a fine cloth of 46 teeth per square inch, so you can easily card wool and other coarse fibers.
This surface speed ratio is 9:1 for the Classic and Electric drumcarder and 12:1 for the Standard and Junior drumcarder
