    Excellent interview! I love that wheel, and this is the first time I’ve been at all interested in spinning art yarn.

    ZOIKS!! That was a very interesting little tidbit there. I’ve been spinning for a while and a half – and never made ‘art’ yarn since my beginner phase ended. I have heard from some very technical spinners that they despised this particular type of yarn, but I see now that she was coming from a totally non technical approach. I find that really refreshing. It also amuses me to see she uses a Majacraft – it’s the thinking person’s wheel. I don’t have one but I’m going to have to consider this – it really is a well designed and executed wheel that is very versatile. I like to spin fine – cotton and such and in order to make any headway you have to do long draw. I find it hard to do long draw on a castle style wheel with a double treadle like my Schact. I LOVE my Schact, but when I want to do cotton I go to my traditional wheel with the orifice set off to the left and then I don’t have to twist sideways in order to have the room I need to get a long draw going. The Majacraft allows you to move the orifice which is really smart. And I believe at one time they had plastic bobbins that could be immersed. And it looks really portable. Food for thought.
