Title

Wool Comb

Description

In addition to flax, wool was an important fiber during the colonial and frontier era. Wool combs arranged the fibers, separating the undercoat from outercoat and teasing the wool before carding by disentangling, cleaning and intermixing fibers. This work was done by women for their families, or enslaved laborers for their enslavers.
