    I wondered how members were getting on with the swing picker. It is not something that would be suitable to have working at any of the shows. I don’t know whether I want to use it as I have one fleece that is rather cotted after washing. All my own fault but the swing picker might be better than trying to tease it out by hand.

    I have the picker for now.  I have a large Suffolk fleece that needed broken up for drum carding. The picker went through it like a dream – from a compact fleece to a light and airy cloud of fluff in 5 minutes.  Unfortunately I put it back in a heap on our 2nd sofa and the cat soon discovered it.

    Yes you need to be wary and we need extra guards. I will try to add something better than the bit of gaffa-taped cardboard I am using now.

    I’ll be bringing the picker back at the December meeting.
