Howard Brush Multi-Use Cleaning & Flicker Card

The Howard Brush Multi-Use Cleaning & Flicker Card has a curved face to clean other cards, Drum Carders & excellent for flicking fibers.

All of our products are handcrafted in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. Our Hand Cards are manufactured to the exact specifications developed by the founders of the Howard Brothers Company in 1866. Each hand card is formed using select woods, with a gently curved compromise between flat and strongly curved cards, allowing for both styles of carding action. The handles are ergonomically designed to shape and fit, easy to orient, sturdily attached to the carder back and finished with a warm hand-rubbed sheen.

        This flicker is great. Recommend using it against a sturdy apron (mine is denim). I also wear a single garden glove on the hand holding the locks to avoid getting punctured by the tines of the flicker. The flicker is sharp.

          This brush works well on a fleece we bought and washed at home. I think it's going to be versatile , i.e. useful for various breeds of wool.

            Comments about Howard Brush Multi-Use Cleaning & Flicker Card:

            I bought this brush several years ago to replace a lost Louet doffer brush. Holy cow, this thing is so much better than the original! It has longer teeth/tines and really gets down into the base of the carding cloth to get out packed in fiber. I can clean my carder much quicker and more thoroughly than I could before. I've not tried to use it for batt burnishing but I've read elsewhere it works great for that too. Definitely a great bargain for anyone who needs to replace a doffer brush or is having trouble with theirs not cleaning their carder as thoroughly as it used to due to wear.
