Description
Three wooden hand carders for breaking up locks and unorganized clumps of fibre:(a)(b) two unpainted rectangular wooden paddles (25.0cmx21.0cm wide) with handles. The working face of each paddle is cylindrically curved and has a piece of canvas card cloth attached with metal staples. Small metal cards, called flick cards, are used to flick the ends of a lock of fibre, or to tease out some strands for spinning off. A pair of cards are used to brush the wool between them until the fibres are more or less aligned in the same direction. The aligned fibre is then peeled from the card as a rolag.(c) one wooden hand carder (14.0 x 9.50 cm wide), red in colour, with a handle; the working face of the paddle is cylindrically curved and has a piece of rubber attached and held in place by the edges of a piece of metal covering the the backside and keeping the handle in place. The flick cards coming out of the rubber are metal.
