Item details

COMBING FIBER DVD: Robin Russo teaches combing with these self-designed combs. She has made a video for those wanting to learn this age old art of fibercombing (pictured last). Learn how to organize your fibers in preparation for spinning. The premiere video on learning how to comb fiber, made by expert Robin Russo and produced by Interweave Press. Combing organizes your fibers so that the strands are headed in the same direction, as opposed to carding which mixes the strands up. The result is a more lustrous yarn. Robin has traveled the USA for many years as a mentor for Interweave events and Spin Off Magazine, teaching fiber preparation. This video is a result of her teaching. Video is available alone or in a combo with the combs. DVD Ships Free if purchased with combs. (I will refund the shipping). If DVD is purchased alone I will refund shipping overages of $7.95. Also offered in the drop down box at upper right. $19.95

HAND WOOLCOMBING And SPINNING Boook: Peter Teal: Hardback. 212 Pages. The classic book on how to use English Woolcombs continuing into worsted spinning. Packed full of technical information, essential for the spinners book shelf. His book is helpful in pointing out the things to be mindful of at the fibre prep stage in order to achieve consistent results. This book will really take your spinning to a new level, gain the ability to control the factors that create yarn so that you can design a yarn based on the potential of the wool, and then produce it. It helps reader to understand the nuances of fleece washing and preparation, basic dying, setting up the wheel and how changes affect spinning the yarn. He explains the nuances, with easily understandable charts and formulas, of twist, grist, drafting, and other skills of spinning worsted. More importantly, Teal explains clearly not only how those things work, but how to put them into practice without a lot of anguish. He shows photos of how to position the hands, and encourages experimentation to find what works best for you. While this book was written on use of English combs, the information overall about fiber prep, combing in general and result oriented spinning, is fabulous. You'll never part with this book once you have it. It should be in every spinner's library. $29.95
