A Long Time Combing

Combing wool is not a quick process. On average I get about 6 little "nests" done in an evening of combing. These two baskets full have taken months, working off and on as the mood strikes.

Next order of business will be to line them up in the color order I want to spin them and then string them together to keep them that way. I invented the organizational technique back when I was getting ready to spin the wool for the Shy Sheep Vest.

I love that you are a 'teaching' person. I've learned so much from you and its great to know your how'to's are still here, even in your archives...I'll need to re-read lots when I get back to spinning. Which I hope will be soon. I've got so many interests and hobbies it sets me back...but I'd still love to get a wheel.
