English combs are the best option for preparing vegetation-free, smooth, aligned fiber that is perfectly ready for spinning. Combing separates what is different, so felted bits, noils, short fibers, and vegetation are removed, leaving you with top-of-the-line fiber. For true worsted spinning, this is *the* preparation to use.
Acorn’s English combs are available in 4 or 5 pitch (rows of tines).
Stainless steel tines measure 6-1/2″ (front row) to 4″ (back row) long. They are set 3/8″ on center. 3-5/8″ working width.
Overall, combs measure approximately 11″ long, 8″ tall and 4″ wide. Each comb weighs approximately 22 ounces.
Each comb set includes two combs, two covers, base, c-clamp, 2 pegs and tine straightener. Handcrafted of oil or paste-finished hardwoods, primarily maple.
