After watching McFly's video on making Laser Dub with combed out acrylic yarn I decided to try my hand at it. I found a rather colorful skein at Joanne's.

Although the two flea comb method McFly uses, I found I preferred the zip tie method I saw on another video. I just found it easier to comb out all the knots. Plus, I could comb out the fibers much longer. I was surprised to see that the combed out yarn was essentially identical to polar fiber, which was a pleasant surprise as it is one of my favorite fibers to tie with. The only drawback with it is you are limited by its fairly short length. I saved the fibers that got brushed out and filled a pill dispenser turned dubbing container as well.
