I highly recommend the book Hand Woolcombing and Spinning by Peter Teal. I’m still reading it, but even the introduction section is very interesting. Mr. Teal believes that when spinning was revived as a leisure art in the mid 1800, it was believed that women were too fragile to handle wool combing, and therefore worsted spinning never revived the way woolen spinning did. He expounds on the virtues of worsted spinning, and the ability of a highly skilled spinner to produce customized threads for a task.
I will soon be referring to the directions in chapter 1 to build a comb set in the lighter range.
