The SpinOlution Pollywog spinning wheel is now added to my list of spinning wheels I carry in the studio! The Espinner Firefly is back ordered and on it's way in about 4 weeks so stay tunned for my review for it but the pollyog arrived last week! Spinolution has found the wheel so popular in the last year that they built a new factory plant just for the POLLYWOGS in Washington state .
It took 5 minutes after removing the bubble wrap to start spinning on it! and i Love this cute little wheel. NOW YOU CAN GET A 12 OZ BOBBIN AND FLYER TOO!
Nothing to lacquer no screw drivers or wrenches needed!
It is a double treadle wheel that is light enough to carry with one hand like I am doing in my photo.
I love this wheel! It is an affordable entry level wheel for under $350! you can add an accelerator head for lace weight spinning later too.

I have in stock the Ashford sample it looms 10" .
you can get any size heddle/reed from 2.5, 5, 7.5, 10, 12.5, and 15 for the Ashfords, great for car weaving, children's lap weaving, classrooms and to sample!
extra heddles, wax and bag floor stand available as additional options
need a wider rigid hedddle loom ? Another good bargin is the ashford rigid heddle loom you assemble and finish to save.
But if you want to open a box and have a rigid heddle loom all finished and assembled and ready to weave right away no waiting a loom that folds with the warp on it and fits into it's own tote bag here is the popular
