I’ve been wanting to spin for several years. I came real close to purchasing a wheel when I learned weaving in 2013; however, I held off since I thought that was too many crafts to learn at once. I first became fascinated with spinning, when I heard the story Rumplestiltskin. I was four or five years old. Spinning flax into gold? My young mind thought that was AMAZING, but I knew it was impossible.
I chose the Kromski Sonata. I selected this spinning wheel because it’s portable. Which means it can travel with me. Kromski also makes some amazing products. One of my looms is made by the same company. It’s functional and beautiful… just like this spinning wheel.
My spinning wheel won’t turn flax into gold, but in time I’ll be able to create some lovely homespun yarn. I’m looking forward to the adventure.
