Finishing Brush

The finishing brush sits on the back of the carder frame. It increases the batt by compacting the fibres as you card and also improves the batt by giving the wool fibres a secondary brushing.

The finishing brush is particularly useful when carding fine fibres as it pushes them into the pins on the drum, making room for subsequent layers. Fibres such as alpaca and angora tend to sit on the top of the pins – further layers have nowhere to go and can gather on the licker-in.
