I process alot of alpaca, most of the pickers aren't set for finer fibers like alpacas. So my husband and I came up with this picker design. Overall width is 7 inches, length is 24 inches. The tines are a sturdy steel. There are 160 tines on the bottom and 75 on the slider. The slide has latched on both sides that when closed makes the unit easy to carry. There is a safety cover for the tines, a brush and a pointed dowel included for easy and safe cleaning. The inserts are removable for coarser wools, Please see our other listing to order that, shipping will be combined. We have a video available on facebook. Please visit Stickybear Creations. Also includes an attachable mesh bag to catch your cloud, a riser to bring the tines just to kissing for those difficult suri fleeces and some beeswax to keep the slider moving smoothly! We have had a great response from the spinning community in general, we strive to offer quality products at a reasonable price. If you are unsatisfied in anyway we will do our very best to correct the issue. We will accept returns. Buyer is responsible for shipping costs, and item must be returned in good condition. Please see our other listings to add a coat of oil for protection. Building and shipping of the picker can take upto 3 weeks, depending on our current list of orders.
Nicely constructed and great design. I still need to work with the longwool locks I use most often to ensure best results. Practice makes perfect!

Item looks as described. I asked for mine to be without the wood burned flower on the side and they were very accommodating. My order did take more than a month to ship out (page says two to three weeks to ship) and that was without any communication about the status of the order until I asked. Overall, it looks like it will do the job (I haven't had the chance to try it out yet), but I would wish for better communication.
