I love my kiwi

She’s fantastic and she is now called Lenore. She’s such a nice relaxed cozy wheel and a joy to spin on. Thank you!

Kiwi 3

I love this wheel! Easy to put together, lovely to spin on! I owned a kiwi 2 a couple of years ago and I really appreciate the new design features. The onboard Kate is cool and the portability is fantastic! My kiwi lives in my car as my run around wheel and she makes a great passenger. No back seat driving or smack talk about my music choices... She's a ten!

Kiwi 3 love

The kiwi 3 is and adorable wheel, and the wood really came alive while I was finishing it. Putting together the wheel was quick and the instructions were clear and simple to follow. This is my first wheel and it has been great to learn on, it is very easy to trouble shoot what I'm doing wrong and the wheel is very forgiving of any errors I make. My goal has always been to spin lace weight yarns and I'm making far faster progress in that direction than I expected thanks to the ease of use of this wheel. When I ordered my kiwi 3, it got placed on back order but the Paradise fibers folk were always reachable and kept me updated on the progress of the shipment when I inquired about it.

Sturdy and compact!

Learned to spin on a drop spindle but I've always wanted a spinning wheel. I don't have any shops that sell wheels in my area so I couldn't try any out before buying, but this one seemed like a nice sensible one. I watched a bunch of videos before buying this wheel and that really helped me think about what I wanted. Well I couldn't be happier! The treddles feel so smooth and natural, and it seems like there is enough versatility that I think I'll be quite happy with this wheel for many years to come. It's very small and compact too. One note for someone else in my shoes; I have heard that this wheel isn't the best option for art yarn, though that is not my focus so I can't comment one way or another. Just wanted to share in case it helps someone trying to pick out their first wheel like I was!

A joy to spin on!

I got a great deal on this wheel at Christmas and I love it! Such a joy to spin on, and I live the folding treadles.
