Wool Picker - Mini Collapsible Swing Picker

  • 53500

Well-designed picking pattern makes it an excellent option for all types of fiber. Effortlessly adjusts to your preferred aggressiveness in seconds. Picking wool is easy as the rocker swings on sealed ball bearings.  A few advantages of the Fainting Maid vs. other pickers is it’s considerably faster and less strenuous to use compared to miniature bench pickers, and yet it’s not nearly as large and hard to move and store as a full-sized swing picker. It's collapsible! The “Fainting Maid” folds down making it easy to transport, or you can store it by putting it up on a shelf or sliding it under your bed.

How does the Fainting Maid out-perform other pickers?

  • Easily adjusts to your own specifications! Simply loosen the two wing nuts on each side of the picker and rotate the two knobs on top. No tools required.

Small but mighty

Small in size but this picker goes through a fleece in not much time at all. The adjustable height makes it work for a wide verity of fleece. It also works well for blending my dyed fibers. It will in my studio for a long time. I produce a fiber content YouTube Channel and this will definitely make its way into a few videos.

Awesome wool picker

I am so impressed with this wonderful tool. Perfect size for hobby spinners who have access to a few fleeses to process a year or two share with friends. Thank you so much.


I was able to pick an entire clean Hampshire fleece with the picker. I love it. Well built. Sturdy. Beautiful. Definitely heirloom quality!

Collapsible Mini Swing Picker

I am so excited to get this! Already worked through some fleece and it works wonderfully! Beautiful workmanship to be admired.. and the function is great! Stowes away easily and nicely when not in use. It is a great product at a great price. I have to give a thumbs up on shipping as well. It literally came 3 days after I ordered it and it was packaged up VERY well. Secure and padded in the box. Thank you!
