hello!

I hope that this is not off topic

My name is Jamie. I live in Vancouver Wa. I am new to spinning. I pretty much taught myself how to spin on a drop by watching videos online. I made my own drop spindles too. However, My only carders (aside from dog brushes that do not work well)are antique and are falling apart.I'm not even sure that iu am using them correctly. Does anyone in the Portland Or/Vancouver Wa area have any combs or carders that they would be willing to sell? Or point me in the right direction on where to buy low cost carders/combs.

Also, I have some wool skirting that I bought for a fair price, but every time I wash it the staples fall apart and it is hard to comb out. When i can get it combed out it is really lumpy.I don't agitate when I am washing it. I pretty much soak it and use an old salad spinner to get the excess water out. Any ideas?
Maybe there is someone here locally that can show me a thing or three?

Thanks for looking :)
