Paradise Fibers Double Row Combing Hackles are the perfect addition to your fiber processing tools. This tool will allow you to lash on your washed fleece and comb it through to rid it of imperfections and vegetable matter. We offer the Hackle by itself as well as options to add an additional double row comb and table clamps (hold it hooks). This is hand crafted right here in our woodshop!
We're offering a 6", 12", and an 18" wide (working area). Each carefully made of Solid Maple. The double row of tines are 3/32 in diameter, set 1/4' on center and protrude 3 5/8 & 3 3/8. That's a 1/4' difference. It's finished with an Oil Urethane blend that not only enhances it's beauty but protects as well. Each tine is handset with a drop of glue and are the same tines we use in our combs. These Hackles can be easily attached to your table with our 'Hold it Hooks' Max gap is 3 1/4".. These Hackles are ideal to comb a lot of fiber fast. Our Hackle Would be great for de-hairing double coated fleeces or you could create rovings by diz'ing right off the hackle. Number of tines: 6" - 49. 12" - 97, 18" - 145. Max width: 6" - 10", 12" - 16". 18" - 22".
Anybody who "knows" Paradise Fibers Fiber tools, will tell you they are beautifully built, paying attention to details and durability.
The With Comb Option adds One Maple Comb. A great option to comb the fiber off your hackle.
I’ve been having fun experimenting with my new hackle and learning what it can do. The quality is good and it stays put with the clamps I bought as well. Be aware there is no cover - I made one from a stiff cardboard tube from wrapping paper. Cut a slit so it will slide over the teeth and it keeps them covered very well.
My husband bought me the hackle for Christmas, and I am so glad he did! I have been prepping fibers and this will allow me to make custom combed top blends, or just very long top from a single fiber type.
I already have a set of double row combs with the stationary holder. I've used them successfully to blend and diz off roving, but wow!!!!!!!!!! How much easier it was with the 6" hackle. Much easier to pull the roving off of it through the diz. Should last me a lifetime, wonderful quality!
I worked on my Double Row Combing Hackle this weekend with my Double Row Combs and it worked great. I have 18 lbs of raw fleece to process and this set up works great. I'm a novice and am sure I have a lot to learn, but having great tools makes the process so much easier.
The product is excellent. Learning how to use it. Might suggest some ideas for utilizing it effectively included with it.
