What is a DIZ?
A diz is used in the final step of combing fibers for spinning. You can diz off of combs, hackles & even a drum carder. The hole in the diz controls how much fiber can come through at one time -- it gets all bunched up and hard to pull, if you are pulling too much through. So, it does control the thickness of the resulting top.
You can still draft it out finer in spinning, and dizzed top usually drafts very easily, if you want a finer yarn.
