Majacraft hand cards have many unique features to set them apart from the crowd. The overall objective in the design process was to craft a card that was both very light, comfortable to use and aesthetically elegant.
Majacraft use bamboo plywood that is both very light and very strong. Several layers are laminated together to form the curved mounting board. They also have a wide and comfortable bamboo handle that makes it easy to support each card while you are using them. Rather than use staples to secure the edges of the cloth, they have used double sided tape and special plastic edging that creates clean and tidy lines. The standard cloth they use is the great general purpose 96TPI. For finer fibres Majacraft offer an extra fine 140TPI cloth.

The extra fine hand cards are built with the same lightweight materials, curved base, and comfortable design as Majacraft standard hand cards, but with a much finer cloth (140tpi), making them very suitable for fibres such as cotton, camelids, super fine merino, silks, and angora. The cards are also wider than their standard cards at 250mm. These hand cards are excellent for use in processing and blending fine and luxury fibres and furs. They have designed them to be durable and easy to use and are a great tool for preparing your fine fibres.

Hand cards are an affordable and accessible way to start fibre preparation. They are used as a pair to either prepare the fibre or to blend fibres or colours. They can also give very fine control over the way the fibre is prepared or blended.
