Faribault Woolen Mill Co, since 1865. Established along the Cannon River in Minnesota, USA.
Carding: From Scribbler to Carder
The Davis & Furber Woolen Card consists of two sections, the Scribbler (left) and the Carder (right). In the first section, raw wool is transformed into batting by a series of rolls. This batting is delivered to the Carder by an intermediate mechanism, the Scotch Feed. In the Carder, the batting is turned into roving, the first stage of the yarn.
Here, the overhead apron of the Scotch Feed conveys the batting/web of wool to the feed apron of the Carder where two rollers apply pressure and motion.
