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!
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.
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!
Excellent! I am in love with the wheel, and very happy with my buying experience! It spins well, and light enough I’ve already taken it to a local shop to spin with.
