I have Judith McKenzie MacKenzie's DVD A Spinner's Toolbox... it is great!
In the video she uses some hand combs, and I wonder if anyone knows what the brand name is and where to find them? I can almost see the brand from the DVD, but just can't read it.
I'm interested because she likes them, and says she always buys the finest combs she can find, and that those are good.
Thanks for your help!
I have exactly the same question. Judith mentioned she really liked Dutch combs and I am wondering if the ones she was using are that genre and what exactly distinguishes Dutch combs from English and Viking combs.
Who makes those beautiful tools used by Judith MacKenzie? I surely wold like to know too. I am in the process of researching combs for purchase so I can complete some Master Spinning projects as well as hand process some of my suri alpaca fleeces.
Does anyone know? Judith, if you are listening, would you please let us know so we can order a set?
You are correct! We had another reader ask about the combs and this was Judith's reply:
The Dutch combs are made by Andrew Forsyth in Canada. He has just started taking orders for them again after several years off while he built his house. His web address is woolcombs.com. He is in Canada; he and his wife have shipped combs all over the world. I love mine.
Although I found it on Google and am not familiar with this particular shop, Stoney Mountain Fibers has a nice page with explanations of the different types of combs and what types of fibers they are best for http://www.angelfire.com/va2/fibers/combs.html. I found it interesting and hope it is helpful to you all, too.
