Wool Combs

After buying 2 kg of raw fleece a while ago, I decided I needed a pair of wool combs. I bought these from Gammeldags, they are lovely, quite small, have a great little cover and smells of linseed-oil. There is just one in the picture because I secured the other one to my work table, combing in an improvised english style, which is better for my still very sore back. I love them, and they work great, making small puffs of fluffy beautiful fiber. I have also noticed that if you put the discarded fiber in a batt, you get a kind of tweedy effect from the little noils, not bad at all. I definitely prefer this to hand carding, it really gets all the undesirable stuff out.
