Majacraft Hand Carders
The blending board is a great piece of easy to carry equipment that enables you to create wonderful fibre blends. This tool is a compact way to create your own colours and fibre blends for your yarn or small amounts of fibre for felting. Made from Marine ply for durability and strength especially in our hot Aussie climate, it features a 28 x 29cm blending area from a 72 TPI carding cloth. The surface of the carding cloth has been processed to be more smooth for close hand work. Complete with an adjustable keel for working on your lap or a desk top, brush and two dowels for making rolags, this fibre tool is a great stash buster!
Please note that brushes might be of a different type depending on availability.
Majacraft hand cards have many unique features to set them apart from the crowd. The overall objective in the design process was to craft a card that was both very light, comfortable to use and aesthetically elegant.
We use bamboo plywood that is both very light and very strong. Several layers are laminated together to form the curved mounting board. We also have a wide and comfortable bamboo handle that makes it easy to support each card while you are using them. Rather than use staples to secure the edges of the cloth, we have used double sided tape and special plastic edging that creates clean and tidy lines. The standard cloth we use is the great general purpose 96TPI.
Hand cards are an affordable and accessible way to start fibre preparation. They are used as a pair to either prepare the fibre or to blend fibres or colours. They can also give very fine control over the way the fibre is prepared or blended.
