Spin-Off Presents: Combing: a Spinner's Guide- eBook Printed Copy Spinning Book
Author: Editors of Spin-Off
44 pgs. (paper, color)
Wool combs deserve a healthy measure of respect—and not just because they are sharp and weighty. It’s a big step to go from spinning commercially prepared top to making your own. But as you will discover, there is no substitute for the pleasure of spinning hand-combed top.
With this collection of articles from some the most distinguished contributors in Spin-Off’s history, you can break down that step from daunting to completely doable. You can build your skills with small and inexpensive equipment such as minicombs, flickers, and even dog brushes, or dive right in with hackles and full-sized wool combs. (On second thought, no diving around the wool combs.)
