Majacraft Hackles, Single and Double Row + Diz

$37.50

To assist in your combing and blending, Majacraft has crafted single and double pitch hackles. The combs have stainless steel pins with polished points that are blunt enough to be much more pleasant to use and sharp enough to do the job well.

The hackle dimensions are:
length, 470mm (18.5 inches)
width, 45mm (1.8 inches)
height, 35mm (1.4 inches)
comb width, 320mm (12.6 inches)

Instead of drilling the hackle base, Majacraft has developed a new technique of bonding the pins in with a very tough resin. The pins are positioned perfectly straight and perfectly even on every hackle.

These are available in either single or double row options. Included is a wooden pin cover to protect you and the hackle when it is not in use. Also included are special Majacraft clamps. The clamp block is drilled at an angle and has a solid rubber top to ensure that the hackle is held firmly on your table and the rubber will prevent damage to the table. The clamps allow you to secure the hackle to a sturdy surface and carry out colour blending in conjunction with a diz (sold separately).

The beautifully finished unbreakable polished brass diz has three hole sizes - 1.5mm, 3mm, for fine through to coarse wools, and a 5mm for colour blending.

The Majacraft diz is made in brass and has the holes cut with high pressure water. There are no burrs at all so the fibre will never catch and the brass has a low coefficient of friction so the fibre flows smoothly. The holes are very accurate so you can be sure your work will be precise.

The diz acts as a former to make a constant thickness sliver from carded or combed wool, while aligning fibres longitudinally. An essential for worsted spinning, and since it aligns the fibre, can be used to revitalize an old fleece or to blend different wools.
