Regarding Mill Site. Carding is the process of combing fibers to untangle, straighten and lay them parallel before spinning them. Before wool can be spun into yarn for knitting or weaving into cloth, it first must be brushed, or carded.
Fulling is the beating and cleaning of cloth in water. The process shrank the loose fibres of the cloth, making it a denser fabric.
