We at She and I Designs are proud to offer the "Fancy Kitty" brand fiber drum carders. Our drum carders were designed by avid spinners, knitters, and crocheters. All our products are hand crafted in our family workshops in the good old USA.
Our Kitten drum carders feature fully adjustable drums mounted on steel axles with sealed steel ball bearings on both the swift and licker-in for silky smooth lubrication-free operation.
They are built using modern methods, quality parts, and hand crafted care. The drums come pre-adjusted for optimum performance; however, they can be easily readjusted for your varying requirements.
This item is for the drum carder with the motorization kit installed, and includes the brush attachment. The motor kit uses a high quality gear head motor. This allows for great torque (turning power) at a very slow speed. It features speed control and reverse. It uses a tooth belt & pulley system that replaces the hand crank. It has the strength of a chain drive but without the noise & maintenance.
The Kitten XL has a 4 to 1 drive ratio. It features a polybelt drive that does not slip, for smooth operation. It has 1/2" long carder wire giving you the ability to produce thick batts. It is 15" in length, 20" wide, and weighs approximately 37 pounds. Kitten drum carders are made from 100% North American Red Oak hardwoods. The slide out feed tray is made from one quarter inch hardwood veneer.
The Kitten XL Wide drum carders have a wonderful Tung Oil finish.
