I'm hugely excited as I have been playing on a fantastic new spinning wheel!
It has been made by a talented
local engineer/carpenter based around a Louet hatbox wheel. I love
these little wheels but find their bobbins too small for spinning my
favourite art yarns. So, David built this with the hatbox as a starting
point, then adapted it to take chunky bobbins have a HUGE orifice, that
can be bypassed-so can fit ANYTHING on and then put it all in a bomb
proof box (very needed round here with small children) - that also has a
built in lazy kate.
Ahhh! Look how fat these coils are!!
All fleece from East Anglian sheep - Jacobs, Ryeland and wensleydale to be exhibited at WSD national exhibition soon, what fun!
