source for hand carders for children

876 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Deborah
does anyone have a source for children's hand carders? i saw some for $50. I guess I did not think they would be as expensive as they are.

Does anyone know if other grooming brushes would work?

We use wire pet brushes. They come in a variety of sizes and you can get the ones that are rectangular, just like a carder.
We use them at home and they have them in our school along with proper carders.
Yes, carders are quite expensive. I bought a pair for my granddaughter from a local wool shop. Fortunately she had some slightly smaller ones that didn't cost quite as much and were a good size for a kid. I don't remember the exact amount...perhaps $40?
