Purple Swirl (No 1) Spinner's DIZ & Threader. This diz was handcrafted with polymer clay, no molds involved. Baked for durability, sanded for ultra-smooth surface, & a light glaze applied. The hole sizes are 1/4", 3/16", & 1/8". There is an even smaller hole that I put there more for decoration, but feel free to use that one too if you want.
It comes with a coordinated, beaded threader. It has a monofilament loop that fits easily through all of the diz holes. The threader can be used while attached to the diz or it can be easily removed with the lobster claw clasp.
All wire, chain & findings are made of copper.
The diz is approx. 1 3/8" & the threader is approx. 2 1/2" long (not including the mono loop).

Even prettier than the photos show!

What is a DIZ?
A diz is used in the final step of combing fibers for spinning. You can diz off of combs, hackles & even a drum carder. The hole in the diz controls how much fiber can come through at one time -- it gets all bunched up and hard to pull, if you are pulling too much through. So, it does control the thickness of the resulting top.
You can still draft it out finer in spinning, and dizzed top usually drafts very easily, if you want a finer yarn.

Are you looking for a quality set of hand combs, comb/hackle set or art roving hackle? www.bluemountainhandcrafts.com or http://www.bluemtnhandcrafts.etsy.com has some wonderful high quality fiber tools at great prices. They also have some very informative fiber tool tutorials that are worth checking out.
