I have been learning to spin on my Ashford traditional as well as my antique wheel made in California in the late 1800's. The wheel is a double flax wheel which spins a very fine yarn.
The yarn is wool, angora and other fibers spun on the Ashford. The white merine was spun on the antique wheel with both yarns plied on a drop spindle. It has a wee bit of sparkle and is very soft.Now I have to figure out what to knit.
