46 tpi vs 72 tpi
Perhaps the most frequently asked question is what fineness of batter do I need? We adhere to the following rule of thumb. If you are mainly carding stronger wool or dirty wool, it is best to go for 46 tpi. If you mainly card finer fibers, the carding mill with 72 tpi is most suitable.

    I love the Hero. I have it for many years already and I have the 72 tpi version. I have a giant with 46 tpi as well, so the Hero is the karding machine i use for finer wool and fibers. I use it to kaard soft fleeces like BFL or Shetland and I also use it to mix or blend any kind of fibers. I use the bord to insert the fibers and in case of mixing or blending, I also use the karding role right away, like “painting on the karding machine”, to bring the fibers right onto the big wheel.
    The design is perfect for me, I love the white and slender machine. I love that you can make small fleeces on the smaller machine. The machine is steady on the table due to the table clamps and I use it a lot for blending and mixing.
    Great design, great price, very good price/value correlation.
