Spin-Off Presents: Combing: A Spinner's Guide

Wool combs deserve a healthy measure of respect—and not just because they are sharp and weighty. It’s a big step to go from spinning commercially prepared top to making your own. But as you will discover, there is no substitute for the pleasure of spinning hand-combed top.

With this collection of articles from some the most distinguished contributors in Spin-Off’s history, you can break down that step from daunting to completely doable. You can build your skills with small and inexpensive equipment such as minicombs, flickers, and even dog brushes, or dive right in with hackles and full-sized wool combs. (On second thought, no diving around the wool combs.)

Contents include:

  • Spinner's Question: Tools for Processing Wool
  • Wonderful Worsted by Iris Dozer
  • Wonderful Worsted II: Alternate Methods to Woolcombing by Iris Dozer
  • Flickering and Combinb Painted Locks by Kate Larson

Note: As some of these articles are true classics, the quality of their images is not as high as we would require today. It’s still great information, so we’ve opted to share it with you despite the rougher edges. You may also note that not all the authors are in agreement on every point. As in all things spinning, there is a bounty of educated opinions. The only way to find your right one is to try it for yourself.
