the spinolution wheels are not heel toe action but a rocking motion to treadle very ergonomic 

 the ashford traditional wheel is wonderful  as is the ashford espinner 3 electronic and easy both are easy to learn on.
Next was the louet S10C. WHEEL which has options for scotch tension or bobbin lead Irish tension.

Kamala tried both and loved the classic Louet iriah tension louet double treadle wheel irish tension here

 she also tried out the spinolution bullfrog and the ashfoird espinner 3 with a woolee winder.
spining fine lace weight on all 6 wheels but options for thicher longer larger bobbins too!


Sabine came to try saori weaving and buy a saori loom so she wanted to try out the different models. she thought she wanted the folding wx60 model but loved the ch60 non folding with 2" height risers.


I wove a autumn SAORI HAT all very soft cotton washable and so soft it is up in my  ety shop

inspiration from our back yard  the ash and Ginkgo tree
