You will be surprised how easy it is to make combed top with a diz!

If you’re not familiar with a diz, it is used when you convert your wool from being combed or carded, into a combed top.

The wool can be drawn off the hackles through the diz, which is a tool made of wood or plastic, with one or several different size holes.  Simply thread the fiber through the desired hole of the diz, and push the diz toward the comb as you draw the wool off the comb to form the top.

See the video on how-to…

If you want to make a ball of roving from a carded batt that has already been removed from the drum carder, simply start at a corner, and begin pulling the fiber through the diz.  You can however pull the fiber through the diz directly from the drum carder!

There are several fun diz designs in my 7 Yaks Design Etsy Shop.  Some even double as a WPI gauge!
