Louet Roving Carder is a narrower size so it is easier to draw your batts into roving. Now available with standard extra fine or classic fine carding cloth. If you card fibers occasionally or card for small projects, this is the carder for you. It has the same carding cloth and solid construction as the Standard Drum carder, but is only 4 inches wide. It is perfect to use to card fibers for small projects like for socks, hats and scarves. You can produce a 4 inch wide batt that can be spun from when you remove the batt from the carder. The batt that is created is the size of a commercial roving. You can also thoroughly blend colors on this model. It is a great introduction to the world of drum carding.

An instruction manual written by well known author and fiber artist Deb Menz is included with all drumcarders.

The Louet Drum carders are made of laminated birch and have a hard white coating. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire. All gearboxes (except on the Elite) are enclosed to prevent fibers entering the gear system.

For drum carders it is common to mention the gear ratio that drives the licker-in when you rotate the large drum. However, what really counts for carding is the ratio of the surface speed of both drums, because the difference of surface speed does the carding. You get this surface speed ratio by multiplying the gear ratio with the ratio of the diameters of the large drum and the licker-in. This effect cannot be created by teasing, but it is essential in obtaining the required carding effect.

To have the fibers pull out of your hand smoothly while turning the drum carder handle requires some practice. The results, however, are worth the effort.
