Natural Wool Roving & Wool Top

Combing is a slightly different way of preparing fibers for spinning than carding. During the combing process the shorter fibers, noils, second cuts etc. are removed, leaving the remaining long fibers ready to spin. This is called a wool top and when spun make an even yarn, that will pill less, can withstand lots of wear and has a great stitch definition.
