How-to Make your own Wool Combs

Not long ago I was browsing on YouTube and came across the following videos showing the proper way to use wool combs.....and the wool combs themselves were quite nice. I especially liked these English Combs ( and the 4 part video series is quite informative) And this comb and Hackle set So with a little more research I also found a HOW-TO blog post here that was very informative.

Dehairing Alpaca Fiber

I got some beautiful Alpaca fiber on the Internet a month or two ago. Of course, when you are buying form a new seller, you don't always know what you are going to get! The fleece was lovely, but it did contain a lot of guard hairs. Sooo...For this week's manual therapy (aka keeping my arthritic fingers mobile!), I dehaired almost a pound of raw Alpaca. It was incredibly relaxing and I find that I really connect with my fiber when I take the time to process it carefully. Some was dyed, some…

Processing, spinning and knitting milkweed fiber

The milkweed plant produces a fiber that can be used by spinners. Fibers from hemp, flax, dogbane, milkweed and nettle have been used for thousands of years to produce textiles, cordage, netting, etc. I've been wanting to try my hand at getting fibers from milkweed, processing them, and spinning them. I finally had the time to give it a try, so I went to glean a few stalks from an area that I know had milkweed growing last summer. I gathered around twenty or so stalks that had been sitting…
