Hands-on with Combs

Hands-on with Combs

Happy Ewe

  • $ 5500

Safety first, so not too hands-on!  During our day, we will focus on Viking-style combs and all the fun we can have with them.  We will discuss the multiple sizes, why we would need different sizes, and how to safely use all combs.  You will learn how to comb scoured wool, diz, blend fibers, blend colors, use a comb as a mini hackle, and so much more!

Prerequisite:  No previous combing experience required; must be comfortable spinning a continuous thread/yarn if you wish to spin your prepared sample.

Materials needed:  Please feel free to bring your own Viking or mini-combs, but there will be plenty available for the class to share, diz. Fibers for class will be provided. Spinning wheel or drop spindle – you may want to spin your samples.

3 hour class
