Perfectly acceptable submitted by crwilley on August 19, 2015, 11:46am For reference, I'm experienced with drop spindles and had a little experience spinning on a wheel before using this wheel. I found it pretty straightforward to set up and use, and by the end of my two-week checkout period I'd managed to make some decent yarn with it. It's not the most flexible wheel out there - there are only two (fairly low) ratios available, which limits the different types of yarn you're going to be able to make - but if you're in a position of learning (and have someone to help) or practicing basic skills, it's a good wheel to work with.

If you're utterly inexperienced but want to learn spinning, the reference materials included in the kit are helpful but probably won't replace a human teacher.

(also, if you're using the included niddy-noddy to measure finished yarn, be aware that it's 5 feet per wrap rather than 2 yards...)

Okay submitted by Danielsen on May 8, 2016, 10:52am This spinning wheel was okay. The main problem was that the spinning set up instructions and the actual spinning wheel weren't the same so it was hard to understand.

Thank You submitted by obrien1988 on June 22, 2016, 1:37pm Thank you so much for having this available for loan. I'd been wanting to try out spinning on a wheel but couldn't afford to purchase one just to try out.

Spinning Wheel submitted by avrogers1 on August 23, 2017, 4:47pm This is awesome. I have never seen one of these before let alone been able to use one. It is amazing that the library offers this tool.

Great to try submitted by wellscai on August 25, 2017, 11:21am It's great to try a wheel out before you head out to buy one.

I think it's fun! submitted by Dewi Lumban Toruan on August 1, 2018, 8:14am My first time using it, it's easy and fun!
