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:


Forsyth Combs

Woodland Woolworks

Susan's Fiber Shop


The music today is from Music Alley

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!
