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.
