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. Practice makes combs easy and quick to use. Fibers and colors 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.
The combo system includes:
2 1-row combs, 1 Brass Diz, 1 Comb Clamp Block, 1 Comb Holder and 1 F-Clamp
Majacraft supplies mini wool combs in either single or double pitch. They are lightweight, strong and attractively made from solid wood. The combs have stainless steel pins with polished points. The design ensures they are comfortable in your hands with the comb angle being the most efficient for combing all types of fibre.
Instead of drilling the comb blocks, Majacraft has developed a new technique of bonding the pins in with a very tough resin. The pins are positioned perfectly straight and perfectly even on every comb.
These are available either as a matched pair of combs mounted on a holder or as a complete Comb System set with a comb block, clamp and diz. This allows you to secure a single comb to a sturdy surface and carry out colour blending in conjunction with a diz
The comb dimensions are:
handle length, 160mm (6.5 inches)
point length, 55mm (2 1/4inches)
comb width, 80mm (3.5 inches)
