Wool combing is a little alarming to the novice - swinging heavy implements with long, needle-sharp teeth can be hazardous. Yet this method of preparation produces the most wonderfully organized, fluffy, silky fiber imaginable. In this workshop, Robin Russo covers the basics and much, much more.

  • You'll see a wide range of tools in action, from simple pet combs to hand-held Viking combs, to Russian paddle combs, to classic English combs.
  • You'll learn that combing is perfect for cleaning out guard hairs and debris, for blending fibers of similar length, and for true worsted spinning.
  • You'll see how different combs are appropriate for different fibers, and how to choose the kind that's best for you.
  • You'll learn important guidelines for safety and for equipment care and maintenance.
  • And you'll hear intriguing stories of wool combing in history, from martyred saints to craftsmen's guilds.

A "must see" for spinners!
I don't know, what I've been doing all these previous years. Carding good fibers in one mess with coarse hairs and wool nebbs. I have been doing nice yarn, though, but in future I'll have the conscious choice, worsted or wollen! I got a set of old coarse combs a week ago, the next ones will be the St. Blaise combs!
This video is such an inspiration. I can highly recommend it!

Loads of Information, not the best format for download
Inspiration & informative. Increased my working knowledge of combs especially how to get the most out of different types. I had a very difficult time with the download, because of FAP and download limits, this is a large file. My extra charges for downloading exceeded the cost of shipping. If your internet usage is limited by a fair access policy you may want to download a smaller version (not HD) or get the video. My download rate slows after so much, I'd loose my connection and have to start all over. I finally got it by waiting up until 2 am and starting the download then...well worth the effort.

Loads of Information
Very informative; I've been carding and combing (English combs), but this expanded my knowledge of combs and how to use them. I especially liked the sections on separating fibers. I'll have to get more combs & I'm inspired to keep at finding new ways to explore my fiber arts. Review by Julie (Posted on 12/30/2013)
Excellent video!
Robin Russo's Combing Fiber is over the top! Her voice is clear and concise, the camera angles are great, no question of where Robin's hands or the combs are placed. The video shows several different styles of combs and fibers, and Robin explains which combs work best for which type of fiber and how to use each type of comb. No cons, couldn't be better.
