Carding

Carding is the process of mixing and aligning the fibres prior to spinning. The Woolmill carding set consists of 3 machines. The first two, the Scribbler and the Intermediate produce thick continuous slubbings or balls.

These are transferred to the third machine, the Condenser where then are fed in slowly and taken off as fine rovings and wound on to wide spools ready for spinning.
