Yay! We have a spinning forum!
So, what kind(s) do you use, and what do you love and hate about them?
I used a Louet spindle (the one with the sheep on it), and it was ok, I was just bad at spindling.
I have a homemade Louet-alike wheel I got off of ebay for a steal, and am currently trying to decide on what color to stain it. I really love the wheel! I've found that if you are treadling slowly that you can get the little black knob stuck at the top, but other than that it is perfect!
Also, do you have a name for your wheel/spindle?
