Arrived on Friday night. My newest room mate. The box was so huge, and I am sure the delivery guy looked smug and suppressing a laugh.
I chose the most basic type, a spinning wheel called Traditional made by Ashford in New Zealand. At first I was planning to buy one that is narrower and takes less space, but when I tried it I didn’t like it that much. It’s unfinished wood so I am going to have to finish the surface with oil, but it’s ok, for I did not like the lacquered wood either.
The bottom photo is the first skein I made with this wheel!
