Clemes and Clemes use a maple, turned handle that provides a comfortable grip for both small and large hands. The handle is tenoned into an alder wood back, either curved or flat, to ensure long life. The teeth are set in a strong yet flexible backing to provide many years of use. They regularly hear from customers who purchased their carders in the 1970’s and are still using them on a regular basis.
The cotton carders have 120 points per square inch and are designed to card cotton or any of the finer fibres such as angora or cashmere. The wooden backs measure 10 1/2″ x 3 5/8″. They are available curved or flat with most spinners preferring the curved back carders. They are also available in a smaller size for travellers or children with the backs measuring 5 5/8″ x 3 5/8″.
