Ashford Blending Board
The blending board is the perfect tool for creating exciting, multi-coloured rolags for spinning, or batts for felting, and it’s lots of fun to use. It differs from other carding tools in that it allows you to ‘paint’ with fibre over a large, flat area of carding cloth to create controlled layers of fibre.
- Portable - you can work with it on a table, on your lap, and even pack it up and take it on holiday.
- Quick and easy to assemble
- Convenient carry handle
- Card cloth has wire teeth with a special protective coating and a flexible rubber backing for long life
