Instead of drilling the comb blocks, Majacraft has developed a new technique of bonding the pins in with a very tough resin. The pins are positioned perfectly straight and perfectly even on every comb.
These are available either as a matched pair of combs mounted on a holder or as a complete Comb System set with Mini-Combs, Comb Holder, Clamp, Comb Block, Diz and Threader . This allows you to secure a single comb to a sturdy surface and carry out colour blending in conjunction with a diz. Single combs are particularly useful if you usually spin a coarser wool. They will help align the fibres for producing a worsted yarn and will remove most of the short fibres. Practice makes combs easy and quick to use. Fibres and colours can also be blended using our mini combs.
Double combs are great for finer fibres. They will help you to prepare a sliver that will give an excellent result when spinning worsted yarns. Colour and fibre blending is simple and effective. Try using a diz for taking the wool off the combs. The resulting sliver is a joy to spin and, as is often the case, the time spent in preparation is taken from the time spent in spinning later.
The comb dimensions are:
handle length, 160mm (6.5 inches)
point length, 55mm (2 1/4inches)
comb width, 80mm (3.5 inches)

The beautifully finished unbreakable polished brass diz has three hole sizes – 1.5mm, 3mm, for fine through to coarse wools, and a 5mm for colour blending. The Majacraft diz is made in brass and has the holes cut with high pressure water. There are no burrs at all so the fibre will never catch and the brass has a low coefficient of friction so the fibre flows smoothly. The holes are very accurate so you can be sure your work will be precise.
