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 handheld 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.
