Electricarder AND Ashford 8 inch carder Package. [Currently Only available within Australia]

The ElectriCarder is designed to work with your Ashford Carder as an accessory. There is no permanent modification necessary to your Ashford Carder. The ElectriCarder does not change the way the Ashford Cards, just how it is powered.

It is made from hardwood locally sourced in the Mid North Coast of NSW. The ecologically sustainable plantation timber is locally milled, and the unit is craftsman made. The timber is finished with an organic timber treatment.
