What’s on my wheel Wednesday!

Yay, not written one of these in what seems A G E S!

So, today we have some sort if mystery fibre. I assume it’s BFL, as the staple is quite long and the fibre nice and soft.
It was sent to me by a lovely lady from the states as part of a fibre exchange.

Considering it was my first spin on the Woolmaker’s Bliss TT it is not too bad, but a little under plied.

I managed to get 523.20 meters from 111. But what am I going to make with it??

No idea what to spin next either got quite a bit of choice.

Ok, so I have a new wheel…

It’s a Woolmakers Bliss TT and it is lovely!

Sorry for the lousy screen shot, but it’s all I could find just now.

Anyway, she spinning lovely and, most importantly, quietly. It has four different ratios and scotch tension. The break is very sensitive but after a while, like about ten minutes, you get the hang of it if you are an experienced spinner. For newbies maybe a little longer, but don’t let that put you off this little beauty.

I do love the modern look of this wheel and it was put together very quickly.
The best thing was that I ordered with the extra bobbins so I now have an inbuilt lazy kate for FIVE bobbins on the wheel! The flyer comes off easily for a quick bobbin change and the wheel is practically no maintenance, other than a bit of a dust now and then.
To cut the long story short, I love my Woolmakers Bliss TT 🙂 and here is my first bobbin is have filled. By the way, if you spin nice and neatly you can fit about 150g on the bobbins, which makes them awesome for plying.
