Thank you ladies, please meet my new spinning wheel.

This is Pip, my horse for spinning!
Ashford Country Spinner and three cows

She’s an Ashford Country Spinner, an Ashford CS2. Double treadle. Big orifice. Slow speed, big capacity.

It’s bobbins are huge, they can hold up to a kilo of yarn.
As big as boots!
