Wrong Tool for the Job
Those Leicester Longwool locks, I tried processing a lock with a Strauch mini hand card cleaner, the cute little thing that looks like a tiny flicker and that can be used as a tree ornament. What an exercise in frustration. The lock is too long for short carding teeth, it needs wool combs. Not sure why I thought it would work, actually. I packed it to take along for an informal knit and natter with friends at a sandwich shop. You can't do that with wool combs. They'd throw you out.
