Combing straightens the fibers more than carding. This difference determines the character of the spun thread: worsted or woolen-spun. Technically, spinning a true worsted yarn requires a combed (not carded) fiber preparation.
Louet makes single row and double row mini-combs, both 6.5 cm (2 1/2") wide. These handy tools are a unique device which can be used for de-hairing and fine fiber combing. After combing, the fiber can be pulled into a sliver or spun straight from the comb.
These combs are made of ash with a lacquer finish. In order to ensure a long life, the teeth on all Louet combs are made of steel. As a safety precaution, all Louet combs are machined so they are NOT razor sharp.
Louet mini combs are easy on your wrists as they are light weight: 2.4 oz or 70 gr.
