Carding

Carding is the processing of raw or washed wool by brushing it. Hand carders are like dog brushes and are used two at a time, brushing the wool between the two until all the fibers in a bunch are going in the samae direction. Machine carding is done with brushes on a drum. Wool is fed into the machine, picked up and brushed onto one or more drums, and then removed.
