Ann, I spin mostly wool, sometimes flax. I've attempted cotton but it seems to be beyond me! Hmm, the kind of wheel...well, my first wheel is an Ashford Traditional. I've had it for so long, and have hauled it around everywhere in the back seat of my car, so it's a little wobbly. But, last fall
I bought a Louet Victoria. I am in love! And...it folds up small enough to fit in the closet of the Scamp!!! The case is not much bigger than a laptop case!
I also work in an 1860's log cabin, and get to do a lot of spinning there. We have a Country Craftsman, an Ashford and a Kromski that we use for demonstrations...that Kromski spins like a dream...love it!
Hahaha, yes...my house IS actually overrun with brooms...they are hanging everywhere! Guess what my friends and family got for Christmas last year???
Bobbie...yes, I'd like to post some pictures. Maybe when I get back from vacation in a few weeks I'll do that.
