These are well=made and work beautifully for me.
The Hodge Silk Bassoon Swab
The bassoon swab can clean both the boot joint and the wing joint. Only one swab is needed to go through the entire body of the instrument.
The Qualities of Silk
All Hodge silk swabs are made from 100% silk and come in performers black, royal blue, burgundy, forest green, deep purple, hot pink and silver. Silk is very absorbent, soaking up water in instruments better than any other natural material on the market, including both cotton and chamois. Most uniquely, silk is also very compressible, making it possible to pull through instruments with large variations in bore size. In addition, silk is lint free.

Very well made with the right materials. Chain weight is sufficient to reliably turn the corner in the boot and drop out. Silk is the most absorbent material and sufficient silk is used to guarantee full moisture removal. Very good product
Works perfectly in boot and wing joints. Swab the boot one time and then use the other swab for the second pass. You don't want to introduce moisture into the unlined side of the boot. Then use either one to swab the wing twice.
