Swing Arm Oak Picker
Now offering free shipping!
Hand made from quality oak, our picker is a great way to process wool fibers from your own fleece, done prior to carding and spinning. 12″ wide, 24″ long, and 24″ tall. Ships FREE in the USA in a 24″ x 18″ x 24″ corregated box via USPS, or FedEx.
The picker’s purpose is to open the wool to prepare it for carding, or for spinning direct from the picked condition. This is a continuous process machine which passes the wool from the front to the rear, where it can drop into a box or container. The picker will tease and blend your wool prior to carding, giving you a greatly improved batt when carded.
The picker has sharp spikes and we have added a lock on the swinging cradle, which allows the machine to be carried in safety, and also to protect children or unauthorized people from playing with it and possible injury. We make our picker from the finest quality oak, and hand sharpen steel spikes. We finish with a light coat of varnish to protect the wood.
This picker differs from many other styles; on our picker the teeth overlap, with 225 hardened steel spikes, which helps to separate the fibers easier and allows a slight stretch to the wool, especially with longer, fine fibers. Short strokes from the picker will easily separate short staple fibers (2.0”- 4.0″), while long strokes work best with longer fibers (5.0” or longer). One pass normally is all that is required, with debris falling to the bottom and a container of picked fiber flowing out the back. A small paint brush makes cleaning the bottom of the picker a snap, with a hole in the bottom to push the debris to the floor.
