Spinning wheel

Hello dear friends :)
I wish that you're enjoying the leave of the summer ! Our holidays is in September.

I took lessons in hand spinning last week. It was so fun !! I spun much the wheel during 2 days, and remembered various methods.

糸を紡ぐことに興味があったものの、独学では時間がかかる。というわけで先日、手紡ぎ講習を受けてきました。2日間めいいっぱい吸収して、受けてよかったです。

My first yarn is not perfect, but how interesting in


I may be able to spin most fluffy yarn like a stomach of a cat by blending. My kitty is fluffy than a merino wool...!!



そして、私が手に入れたのは40年前の紡ぎ車です。本場ニュージーランドの親切な仲介者によってずいぶん安く手に入れました。
最初の持ち主はちょこっとやって飽きたみたいですね。

I think, there is no space where a big wheel is put in my craft room. and I was hesitated in a beginner's getting a expensive newly wheel first.
So I got old wheel made in 1976.
This is Peggy series of Rappard company. I think this company is just Ashford now. 


My little Peggy is very small wheel. My teacher said that the small wheel is difficult because it is necessary to step on many feet. Her saying, the big wheel is smoother. Yes, the meaning is clear, But it's an advantage that it's very compact.


これはRappard社の紡ぎ車で、今のアッシュフォードのトラベラーの原型だと思われます。紡ぎ車にしてはかなり小さいです。


I will be able to show you my yarn soon



とりあえず少しずつでも毎日練習。そして自分が作りたい毛糸も、これから見つけていきたいと思っています
