What a lovely wheel! It looks to be in very good shape...I wonder how old it is? (and how many miles of yarn it has spun?)...


Beautiful wheel. When I started spinning, my grandmother told me about watching her grandmother spin cotton (we're from the south) on one of the "big wheels" so she could knit socks. Makes one appreciate that we don't *have* to do this, but are able to do it for a hobby.

I knew that piece of wood was something good :) Congrats on the new wheel!


After just seeing a great wheel at our Fiber Festival I can appreciate what you have. It is a testiment to the spinners that came before us and how even a little automation helped spin more than a drop spindle.

    A series of barn photos I've taken or been sent. Barns are magical to me - they have so much character, and provide so much for the animals and farmers.
