As you can see, the hand combs are much smaller than the large 2 handed combs used with our stationary combing hackle. I generally use these to comb or blend small amounts of fiber if I want to see how a particular blend will come out before doing it in quantity on the comb and hackle set. They're also great for sitting on the couch and combing with while watching TV or taking to spinning groups and guild meetings.
Combing & Reloading
Continue this until you find you're not getting much more fiber off the comb. Due to me loading the comb with the fiber going in all directions versus loading individual locks all going in the same direction, I will comb off the back side of the left hand comb on this first pass only. This will grab some of the good fiber on the back side of the tines and loosen up what's in the front so I can comb off more there.
After all of the fiber is combed off of the left hand comb I remove the waste and brace the comb against my knee reloading it with the right hand comb with a side to side motion exactly like I do when reloading the combing hackle flipping the comb every few times to get both sides. You can also hold the full comb and comb off of it side to side as you did in the beginning with the initial combing. I prefer to reload the comb as if it were a hackle but this is just a preference on my part.
I load some of the blended fleece on to the comb and then put a layer of "add ins", add more blended fleece then another layer of "add ins". After this it's just combing and reloading until you've blended the fibers to suit you.
