worsted and woolen in the carding/combing or in the spinning? I took
a spinning class and was told that the difference comes from how the
wool is pulled from the roving into the spinning, not how the roving
itself is made (which is what you do when you card or comb). Anyone
more experienced at this who can give me an answer?
I have to say, spinning can be lots of fun. I even got to use 4 inch
Viking combs to comb the wool and make the roving. Once you've seen
the combs, you can see how women would use them as weapons. Yikes!
