Hand-Held Combs

 

Louet Single Row Mini Combs  Louet Double Row Mini Combs

Louet Mini Combs

These popular Louet Single Row Mini Combs are a unique device which can be used for de-hairing and fine fiber combing. After combing, the fiber can be pulled into a sliver or spun straight from the combs. Louet cares about your safety and ensures that the tines of the combs are not sharp.
Also available from Louet are the Double Row Mini Combs. These are similar to the single row but produce a perfect slubless sliver from extremely fine fiber. Both mini combs are light on the wrist. They are made of ash with a lacquer finish.

Valkyrie Standard Viking Combs

Valkyrie Fine Full-size Combs
Traditional larger style hand combs.  33 tines are set in double rows, 1/4 inch on center. The 4 1/2" long tempered steel tines are firmly set in a 5"  wide hardwood handle.  These tines never need "straightening."  3/16th diameter tines are flexible enough to take abuse, and still bounce back to their intended alignment.  The tines slant slightly back for the last 1" to the tip, which helps them pass by each other without interference.  Weight for the pair is 16.3 oz.  Silky-smooth unfinished hardwood.

These tines never need "straightening."  They are flexible enough to take abuse, and still bounce back to their intended alignment.  The tines slant slightly back for the last 1" to the tip, which helps them pass by each other without interference.  Double row combs have 25 tines set 1/4 inch on center, and single row have a baker's dozen, also set 1/4" on center.  Total weight for the pair is 9 ounces for single row and a little under 14 ounces for the double row.  Now also available in Cherry hardwood.  Silky-smooth unfinished wood.

2012-09-24_14-21-48_480.jpg (2188638 bytes)

Valkyrie SuperFine Mini Combs
Designed for combing very fine fibers.  These combs are the mini size (4" comb head, 3" tine area), but with three rows of tines.  The tines are set in poly-resin, which is then bolted to the maple wood frame.  This is done so fluctuations due to the wood breathing will not affect the bond between the poly-resin and the wood - with the bolt system, the tine head will always be securely attached, with no wobbling or slipping.  Handle is a comfortable one inch diameter.  The 74 polished, hardened steel tines are 1/16" diameter, 3" long, and set 1/8" on center.  The tines have a very slight curve near the tip, which helps them pass by each other without interference.  Total weight for the pair is a little under 17 ounces. Made of silky-smooth unfinished hardwood.

Paddle Combs

Peasant Combs Open   Peasant Combs Closed

Peasant Combs
From The Spinning Studio of Vermont, Pat Russo hand crafts these paddle combs out of oil-finished cherry wood and polished steel tines.  They are not "hand-held" combs - they must be clamped to a table or workbench to be used.

As Pat and Robin tell us, "They are a very efficient tool for organizing fiber, and spinning can be done directly from the mounted comb if the spinner can bring her wheel close enough to the table or mounting device.  These combs work particularly well on shorter fleeces.  They are not intended for very fine fibers."  

Paddles are 7.5" wide and 10" long overall (handles are 5" long).  Polished steel tines are approximately 3.5" long, 3/32" thick and tapered to a smooth point, set 1/4" on center in a single row 6.5" long.  Set includes two combs and mounting device; please note that you will have to provide your own clamps to clamp the mounting device to a table or workbench.
