Rebecca bought her first wheel ! She chose the The Louet S17 SPINNING WHEEL KIT HERE for her first wheel.
She easily put three coats of danish oil on and assembled the wheel it and came back to the studio for wheel class on how to spin. I had her tried different breeds of fleeces to spin so that she could feel the differences in attenuating the fibers . She is a UCSC student majoring in marine biology .
I taught Rebecca a few years ago how to spin on a drop spindle so when I taught her on the wheel she only took a few minutes and she was spinning! My spinning classes here at Saori Santa Cruz to schedule a class and class info here.
I love all of Louet wheels and have all the models to try here in the studio and wheels to rent. They are not just begginers wheels they grow with you too, you can add different flyers and accessories.
Rebecca wants to spin art yarns so she purchased the LOUET ART YARN FLYER here .
It is amazing for plying on too . A effortless to use designed flyer .. none are designed or made better and I have tried them all.
With a bags of fiber and her new louet wheel seat belted into her car she backed out of the drive way smiling and destressed!
I got some new to the studio shades of the wonderful Louet merino silk fibers into the studio this week. see all the fibers I carry and color spinning fibers section of my Etsy shop
