I tanned a South African Meat Merino lamb hide and used this comb to brush out the wool. It fluffed it up nicely. I might get the cleaning carding comb if I use the comb again. It does get clogged.

This card has worked great for us. We have Romney sheep and use the #2 for the coarser wool sheep and the #3 for the finer wool.

love the product. Made out of really good material. The only thing is to put a little hot glue at the corners, because they are really sharp. I know because I cut my self a few times when it slipped out if my hand and the corner rubed against my skin.

My son got this card for fitting his Dorset ewe lamb that he has for his 4-H project. He is getting help from more experienced fitters and they said this is the card to have!
It's perfect for brushing out wool on head and legs. It's very sturdy — my young son has dropped it many times at the show and it is still good as new.
Thank you for an excellent product!
