Louet hand cards & combs are made of tulip wood, a Dutch Poplar variety. These light-weight hand cards have a curved back and ergonomic handles that fit comfortably in your hands. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire.
Carding and combing are pre-spinning treatments to align the fibers which enables you to spin fibers more easily. For the technique of felting or making woolen blankets, carding is essential. Combing straightens the fibers more than carding. This difference determines the character of the spun thread: worsted or woolen-spun.
