The brand I got was QVS, made in China, and I can't for the life of me find it online. If you search for fabric or mesh or microfiber tip capacitive stylus you'll find some similar ones. Amazon has some. Boxwave has some on their site. Just make sure it's the fabric and not rubber tips.

As an extra, the fabric wipes away some of the smudges on the screen while you use it!
Where did you get this at? Maybe I will just put some fabric over a piece of rubber.

Not sure what I can do about that, I try to turn pages, over and over again. KFHD no problem, it does it easy. I still love the PW to read on, now that I got the brightness I needed, but frustrated changing pages.
The PW is simply not as fast as the KFHD, so maybe your ninja-quick page turns are too fast for the PW to pick up consistently. Does the PW use taps or swipes to turn pages? If it's swipes, have you tried swiping more slowly?

As far as making your own gloves is concerned, I saw an interesting video where the guy used a sheet of the material from an antistatic bag (commonly used to wrap electronics components like hard drives, RAM, etc) as a stylus, so it should be possible to cut small pieces of the bag material and sew them onto the tips of your gloves.

I don't think any old fabric will do and I don't know what kind it is - probably has capacitive qualities.

I've only seen fabric covered ones at one store in Hawaii. Probably doesn't help you much.

Also found these on Amazon that look like they're the same. But prettier. Mine is black.

Very interesting saved that on my bookmarks for later shopping. I have noticed the rubber tip kinda sticks when you swipe. I have streak marks on my screen, guess I push to hard on it

I am going to try eyeglass cleaner micro type fabric (don't know what it is called) that slides.

The PW (from the pictures on the Amazon) it looks like an extra layer of glass over the capacitive layer. Maybe that is why it is not as responsive. I haven't noticed anyone else commenting on this.

No ninja page turns here

You can page tap or swipe. I have tried quick swipes, short and long swipes, it is a fine art I guess.

I don't have this problem on an Ipod Touch 4 or the KFHD. So it is definitely the PW that is the problem child.

I just bought a hard drive and there was so extra fabric there, just a box
