Carding

First, the card-shaped grinder must be securely attached to the corner of a stable table. You can do this with the 2 table clamps supplied.

Pre-treat the wool by loosening it with your hands. You can remove residual straws and other undesirable things.
Put the tufts of wool on the supply with the left hand and turn the clockwise clockwise with the right hand. When the wool is pulled too hard through the mill, hold the wool with the left hand a little bit.

As soon as the roll is full (you can hardly see the teeth again and the turning is a lot heavier) then turn the roll further so that the adhesion of the card cloth is above.

With the supplied hook you can pull the wool on the seam (some people find the haircut easier, but of course the fibers are damaged)

The fuller the big role is the easier you can get the carded wool off the big roll. With the supplied brush you can get it off so you have to try to leave the wool a whole. If the wool is very dirty or does not have the desired result, you can card it again. It is not necessary to clean the small roll unless you change color.

And voil√†, here the result. For spiders I always prefer to use thinner “carding”, so the wool is still loose. For making duvets, etc., you can better stick a bit thicker.

NB. Make sure that you place the wool on the center of the feed plate at all times to prevent wool from getting in between the rotating mechanism. Should that be the case, immediately remove the wool.
