3 Row Super Fine Wool Combs for Super Fine Fibers
These combs are designed for those fleeces with fine, thin, slippery, tight locks. Fibers like Angora rabbit, Pygora, especially fine Suri Alpaca, and similar fibers. Our Super Fine Combs are made with thinner pins than the rest of our combs and have 3 rows instead of the standard double row. This helps the combs hold onto those thinner fibers that slip through the pins of the the extra fine combs. They will fit perfectly in ANY Bam Fiber Works comb holder. The working area of this comb is 2 7/8" wide.
For help selecting the right combs check our our easy guide and comparison of all our combs below.
Included is: A pair of Triple Row (3 pitch) Super Fine Wool Combs, and our optional Original Magnetic Comb Caps.
What makes our combs special?
- Smooth Points won't snag on your fiber.
- A long taper is very important to easily penetrate the fiber instead of pushing it out of the way. Each pin is professionally made in an 8 step process for the highest quality tines.
- Sharp, but not too sharp. A micro beveled tip on the points keep them sharp but not too sharp. Needle sharp points are dangerous to use, and easily bend the very tips if dropped.
- Sturdy Tines. Not all Stainless steel is created equal. There are a variety of Stainless-steel grades with varying strengths and weaknesses. We use the stronger options for the superior combing experience.
- Comfortable to hold and use. Ergonomic, one-piece hardwood handle feels natural in your hand.
- Handcrafted in the USA from Cherry, sanded smooth, and finished with hand rubbed Danish Oil Finish.
- Lightweight. The tines are 3 1/8 inches by 2 7/8 inch wide. Larger than our mini combs but slightly smaller than our Regular combs.
- With special thanks to Susan Mcfarland (Author of Combs Combs Combs) for her expert advice, feedback, and input throughout the designing process.
- One system for all our combs and hackles. With our redesigned holder, (sold separately here: ( bamfiberworks.com/collections/frontpage/products/wool-comb-holder ) all our Combing supplies all share the same holder and clamps so they work flawlessly with each other. The new clamps in our redesigned holder can be used interchangeably with our Hackles as well.
Now with (Optional) Magnetic Comb Caps!
- Quick and easy to install and use. These comb covers snap on and off in a second.
- Holds firmly to the comb with a strong magnet. No need to worry about the cap falling off as you carry them around.
- You can install the cap while the Comb is full of fiber. Only covers the sharp points while leaving the rest of the comb open. If you need to set a full comb down you can clip on a cap until you have a chance to diz off your fiber.
What Combs do I need. Fine? Extra Fine? Super Fine?
Each comb has its own purpose. I recommend starting with the combs you will use most often and add to your collection as you need.
Fine: Perfect for most medium fibers like Romney, Suffolk, Shetland, Blue-face Leicester, and similar fibers . The tines are set approx. ¼” apart.
Extra Fine: Perfect for most finer fibers like Alpaca, Merino, Rambouillet and similar fibers. If your locks are very thin and tightly crimped you may need these combs to hold the fiber better than the Fines. The tines spaced approx. 3/16” apart.
Super Fine: (or Ultra Fine) These combs are designed for those fleeces with fine, thin, small, slippery, locks. Fibers like Angora rabbit, Pygora, especially fine Suri Alpaca and similar. Our Super Fine Combs are made with thinner pins than the rest of our combs and have 3 rows instead of the standard double row. This helps the combs hold onto those thinner fibers that slip through the pins of the the extra fine combs. The working area of this comb is 2 7/8" wide.
Single or Double Row?
Double Row: (Also known as 2 pitch) This is the most common and versatile comb. Double row combs help separate out the shorter fibers and second cuts from the longer stronger fibers. The unwanted waste will be left in the small space between the front and back row.
Single Row: (Also known a single pitch) These are very useful for blending double coated fleeces, or any time you want to keep all the fiber together.
Mini, Regular or Large Combs? What's the difference?
Note: These terms refer to the actual size of the combs.(Not the tine spacing) In any of these options, you can purchase them in Fine, or Extra Fine, Single or Double Row. (see above) This listing is for our Super Fine Combs, which is a specialty comb. It's size is slightly smaller than our 'Regular' comb, but larger than our 'Mini' It fits perfectly in any of our Comb Holders.
Mini Combs: These are our smallest, lightest weight combs. Perfect for doing small batches of fiber. When you first hold one you will be instantly in love with it! It's small size makes it easier on your wrists, arms and shoulders than larger/heavier combs. They will fit perfectly in any Bam Fiber Works comb holder. The working area of this comb is 2 1/2" wide.
Regular Combs: These are our most popular combs. If you are unsure what you need, go for this one. You won't be disappointed. Designed for the best balance between size and weight They will fit perfectly in any Bam Fiber Works comb holder. The working area of this comb is 3 1/4" wide.
Large Combs: These are our Largest basic combs. If you want to be able to comb more at a time this is the option for you! A slightly longer handle than our Mini and Regular combs with a larger working area. We redesigned our holder to fit these combs as well as our other combs. If you already own one of our holders make sure it has our logo stamped on it to ensure you have the redesigned holder! The working area of this comb is 4" wide.

Questions? I would love to help!
Bam Fiber Works
I started with a set of fine combs and have used them on several fleeces. I love the excellent design and workmanship. The handles are comfortable and don't slip in your hands, the slight curve of the comb head and the shaping of the tine ends prevent the tines hooking into each other, and the magnetic comb covers are a real winner for safety and storage. They work well for most wool, but I ordered a set of three-row super fine combs for angora, alpaca, and blending. The alpaca turned out beautifully, and I'm still practicing on angora and blending, which are new to me. The finer tines are a little more flexible than I prefer and they tend to intermesh if I get careless. They hold the fine, slippery fibers really well, however.
The 3row super fine wool combs are excellent. They are the perfect size and weight. They work wonderful for my alpaca fiber, and I received them super fast. Bam fiber works is a wonderful place to buy fiber tools.
