Carding Cards

Carding Cards are made of two pieces of boards and a handle on each one of them. On one side of it there are teeth resembling bend pins and the same is on the other. A little wool is put on the bent pins and the other card is pulled accross the wool several times. Some of it is taken off the card and put on the back of the card and made into a roll. This roll is very fine for spinning. These rolls are put into a box and when the box is full the spinner can start working on the wheel.
