Wool picker

My lovely husband has offered to make me a wool picker. We found some plans and instructions online but I wondered if anyone else has done this and is there anything we should bear in mind. Thanks for any advice.

Lucky you to have such a lovely man who is also able to do jobs like this. I hope it works out well.

I’ve no experience and don’t think I can recall anyone making one either.  So I’d be very interested to have pics and hear how you get on!

I'll ask him to take some photos as he goes along and post them. Not sure when he's starting it.
