Single row combs
Single combs are particularly useful if you usually spin a coarser wool. They will help align the fibers for producing a worsted yarn and will remove most of the short fibres. Fibers and colours can also be blended using our mini combs.
Double combs are great for finer fibers. They will help you to prepare a sliver that will give an excellent result when spinning worsted yarns. Color and fiber blending is simple and effective. Try using a diz for taking the wool off the combs. The resulting sliver is a joy to spin and, as is often the case, the time spent in preparation is taken from the time spent in spinning later.
Comb set includes, a pair of Mini-Combs, Comb Holder, Clamp, Comb Mounting Pad, Diz & Threader.
Both single row (15 tooth) and double row (29 tooth) combs are shown. You will receive one pair of the style of your choice (not 3 combs). A pair of single row combs weight approximately 8 oz. A pair of double row combs weigh approximately 11 oz.
