If there are Zombies lurking about, don't be afraid- just take out your wool combs.

These stunning two-pitch mini combs are from PJ Handcrafts. They make quick work of turning long-locked fleece into smooth, even roving. They are the perfect size for me- not so big and heavy where I need to be drinking a protein shake twice a day in order to work them, but still big enough to get a satisfying amount of roving off them.

I'm using them on a white BFL fleece. Blue Face locks are tight ringlets, which are next to impossible to card, but a breeze to comb. There are also a lot of second cuts in this fleece, and this helps weed them out nicely. It also lets most of the VM caught up in the ringlets to drop right out, saving you from having to go after them with tweezers and a magnifying glass.

Good times.
