Color Blending on Combs

If I was given a choice between combing and carding to process wool, I would pick combing in an instant. It is simply the best tool to get your fiber free of vegetable matter, line up the fiber straight for smooth spinning, and fast blending of colors. Just two passes on my Alvin Ramber combs transforms washed wool into the fluffiest combed top ready for spinning.
