Making Your Fibers into Combed Tops

Combed Tops

Zeilinger Wool Co. can also make your fibers into a “worsted combed top”. During the processing of the fiber, all noils and short fiber is removed. The end product leaves you with a perfect parallel fiber. The advantage to a top is being able to spin faster than a regular roving and a much finer or thinner yarn. One of our customers even makes lace out of her “tops”. We recommend a 3″ or longer staple. Wools that comb the best are fine and medium wools. We also comb coarse wools and blends of wool with mohair, alpaca, llama, etc. There is a greater fiber loss due to a greater amount of processing. We need approximately 10 pounds of raw fiber or 5 pounds of washed fiber with complete removal of all lanolin per lot in order to process your wool into “tops”. Please see below for “top” pricing or if you would like more detailed information on “tops”, please call 1-989-652-2920.
  • Prices include washing, carding/pricking and processing your fibers into combed tops. Click HERE for processing pricing.


Super fine wools will noil or pill in the carding process. To avoid this we recommend combed tops to remove these noils and sharp fibers.
