Our 4-pitch sets comprise of a single comb, hackle, two clamps, together with two tine straighteners and a simple plastic diz. The stainless steel tines are shaped to help loading and lashing fibres, also fingers from being combed along with the fibres.

The comb is designed for comfortable use, having the 'Forsyth' signature handles and good balance. Made from exotic hardwood named 'Jatoba,' the sets come in their own softwood storage and carrying box.

February 2013.....4 pitch Combs.....Now also available in Black Walnut.

We have two designs available, the 4-pitch "FINE" and the 4-pitch "SUPERFINE." Each type process fibre from your washed fleece into wonderful 'top' for spinning. Our 4-pitch combs do the job of the traditional 5 pitch combs but have the advantage of being able to process shorter fibres that the traditional combs fail on. They remove most of the neps, noils and debris from the fibre. The comb sets are useful for blending colours, they also blend different fibres together, requiring only one or two passes prior to diz'ing off. De-hairing - the removal of guard hair. This can also be achieved on our 4 pitch design because the longer, and much coarser fibres will project out further than the softer shorter fibers. These can be pulled off first and stored for later use. To see the superfine set being used to process tippy fibre view the first video.
