spinning wheel

Post  Theresa on Wed Oct 09, 2013 10:03 am

learning how to spin on a drop spindle, I decided to get me a spinning wheel. I've never used one before, or even seen anyone spin on one other than youtube videos. I bought a Ashford kiwi spinning wheel.
It came in the mail,

and I had to be VERY NICE to my husband Bob so he would put it together for me, but it wasn't really hard to put together, the instructions were very easy to follow.

It took me a few tries, but I soon caught on to how it's done.
It comes with 3 bobbins and once you have two single spools completed you can ply them together, once I spun it into 2 ply yarn, I dyed it red with cherry koolaid, and then after it dried I put it on a yarn ball winder.
Here is my very first ball of 2 ply yarn that I made on my spinning wheel. It is 50% sheep wool, 50% English angora rabbit wool. And the sheep wool was given to me from someone I know who has sheep, and I had to hand wash it to get it clean, so the wool I used came right off the animals, it wasn't store bought. Smile
