Here’s the new wheel
Oh, I love my local libraries. Even though I haven’t had time to spin I’ve been reading “Handspinning, Dyeing and Working With Merino and Superfine Wools” to get some tips on how to spin up all the merino that I got for Christmas. So this weekend I’ll be spend time getting more acquainted with my new toy and practice spinning merino.
I’ve been trying to decide whether I should get the super high-speed whorl to spin merino. From what I’ve been reading, it looks like I have two options. Two get the right amount of twist I can either use the fast speed whorl that comes with the wheel and do more treadling or I can buy a smaller whorl and treadle less. I need exercise so I’ll pass on the smaller whorl for now.
