Cleaning and processing wool

I've been given two raw fleeces that I'd like to learn to process. Does anyone know of a place to rent drum carders in the New York City area? I'm not ready for that kind of investment yet.

Thanks!

I don't know of any places in the city that have drum carders currently, much less rent them. The Spinning Study Guild of Long Island might. Donna usually schedules a carding party once every so often at a meet up, but using a drum carder isn't necessarily super quick. I'm finding it to be only slightly faster than hand carding (15 min to pick and card an ounce or two of washed fleece, maybe?). Several members of the group have drum carders, you might also want to start a topic on the Spin City Rav group board to get more responses about other options outside the city.
