Dear Julie and Joe,
Just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know how much fun I'm having with your English wool combs that I bought from you at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo this year. I also purchased some of Coral Stewarts' dyed fleece. More of a sentimental purchase, as I don't need any more fleece, but I do love her work and have a jacket and a jumper made from her dyed yarn, which I love.
I found the best way was to load a rough colour block at a time, then take it off with the free comb, load more, take off more, and keep going till I had this:
You can sort of see the layers that were created and when I 'dizzed' it off I got
my Etsy shop.
I really love the combs and have started work on my next project, and, as convener of Experimental Spinners at the guild, we're going to have a session playing with wool combs. A couple of us have wool combs and so does the guild. We're going to try colour blending and see what happens.
Thanks again for your marvellous products and your generosity in sharing your knowledge.
PS Hints on blending colours on wool combs would be appreciated!
