Louet Flick Carder - The Little Grey Sheep

Louet Flick Carder

The flicker is a handy tool used to tease locks of fiber in preparation for spinning. The curved paddle of tulip wood is 6 X 10 cm (2 3/8" X 4") and has a less flexible cloth than the other cards. This allows felted ends of the locks to be straightened out. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet carders are made of high grade plated steel wire.

Idea for teasing open long locks of Gotland and Cotswold.
