  • I had long "thought about" getting a spinning wheel, spinning my own yarn, but then, having a huge box plopped in front of me, I was happy, confused and mostly scared that I would not be able to figure out how to spin at all. I had never really seen a spinning wheel up close, did not have any friends who spun yarn and had to "learn" even basic things like that drive wheel turns clock-wise when spinning. And learn I did, in the beginning just happy if my yarn did not fall apart, spinning a lumpy and bumpy yarn that I christened " novelty yarn". But I learned to treadle the wheel evenly, how to steadily draft he fibers in my hand and more. I learned the difference between a sliver and a wool top, worsted and woolen spinning and least but not last how to oil my spinning wheel to keep it in great shape.

  • That day was the simply beginning of a long time love affair with spinning, yarn and of course fibers. Not only have I fallen completely in love with the soothing rhythm of the spinning wheel, the textures of the various spinning fiber and the ability to spin the yarn in the color and thickness I want, but also built our own spinning and weaving online business and local shop in Oregon from the ground up. With over a decade in business I still get excited when new spinning fibers and rovings come in and new spinning wheel models are introduced.

    The newest addition to our already cozy studio apartment: a handmade spinning wheel. Noah bought it off craigslist last weekend for an early birthday surprise. The woman warned us that it would need a few pieces – a peg to hold up the wheel, a belt – but we were confident we could easily replace any and all of the parts. Niether of us knowing anything about spinning, we were chuffed to have a gorgeous handmade wheel displayed in our apartment.

SPIN WHEELS – Cycling for Everyone

Electric spinning wheels or e-spinners are powered by an electric motor rather than via a treadle. Some require mains power while others may be powered by a low-voltage source, such as a rechargeable battery. Most e-spinners are small and portable.
