  • Small Wool Picking Machine

    The teeth on this small wool picker pulled the fibers apart, cleaned, shredded and blended reclaimed wool rags and scrap material.

    In a separate building, very large, waterpowered woolpicking machinery processed the great volumes of raw wool supplied to the mill.
