Tag Archives: Haldane spinning wheel

A Haldane has come to stay

My jammy daughter has been given a Haldane wheel by a member of our spinning group! 

 

It has taken several hours of jiggling, adjusting and oiling but it is now working much more smoothly than it was.  It is much harder to treadle than my Ladybug, but is growing on me.  I look forward to finding out more about this wheel.

I also managed to get half an alpaca fleece for a huge £2.50 so I don’t feel left out in the goodies stakes!
