I have a new set of wool combs! These are "Pixie Claws" made by Beth Duncan. I picked them up on Wednesday, and immediately got to work with some Border Leicester fiber I had washed. The combs do a great job of opening the fiber, removing vegetable matter, and making ready-to-spin top. I was thrilled! I ordered my set of combs with two rows of tines on one comb and three rows on the other. My hope is that this will give me the extra combing power of multiple rows of tines, but the lighter weight of a comb that only has two rows of tines. So far, I have kept the three row comb stationary and have used the two row comb in my hands.
Here is the Border Leicester after a few passes (I think I was doing a total of four passes, then dizing the fibers off). You can see the "D" shaped handle on the comb in the back.
Turning one comb upside-down on the other gives a safe way to store the tines.(which, incidentally are not sharp, just pointed.)
