Today's quiz question. Who can tell me what these are? Hint - they're directly related to my previous two posts.

My grandmother gave them to me. She got them from her grandmother. They are VERY precious to me. And yes, I have used them myself. Once and only once just to see if I could. LOL!

Nancy,
They look like they comb cotton off of something? Beats me! DO TELL!

The fact that they were your grandma's makes them extra special too!

Heeheehee - I used to spin and weave. I know the answer! Should I tell or wait to see if anyone else comes in with it?

I know. I know.

I'll wait and see what others say, too.

Hint: They are not cat brushes. ;)

And Nancy, what a treasure.

Aloha,

Are those "carders" Or something like that? I think we used them with our lambs.....

They are cool whaever they are & a nice heirloom!

Is there a mechanized way to do the same thing these days? (you know like how we use a computer to do a journal...)

I think they have something to do with wool or yarn . . not sure but it is definitely nice for you to have those heirlooms!

Oh, wait . . maybe it has something to do with getting the seeds out of cotton?
