How to decide whether to comb or card a fleece once it is washed, is the topic of today's podcast. I also do a hands on recording of the packet process I use to wash wool locks and then review the results of that project.

Fibers combs all are designed to give the spinner lovely top to spin. But with such a wide variety of type of combs available to the spinner, how does one decide which is right for them? That is the question I talk about in this podcast, discussing things I know from experience, and from internet research.
One interesting webpost I discovered was about a person's attempt to recreat an old Icelandic comb, which was probably used both from human and animal hair. That site can be found here.
Several web sources to purchase combs are:
The interlude is by Blake and is called The Hungarian Love Song
The closing song is by Debbie Cunningham and is the jazz classic, My Funny Valentine
Until later, happy spinning!
