The attached pages are more for helping me keep track of what I’ve done than anything else, but they function as a virtual gallery in the different areas.

As a side note, I firmly believe that while one may participate in a hobby, the reality is that the tools one uses are important–and just as important were they for something which was not a hobby. Having the right tools for the task makes that task easier. I can at least endorse the manufacturers for the tools in my own arsenal:

  • Cascabeles top-whorl spindle, 1.8 oz.
  • Bosworth mini top-whorl spindle, .7 oz
  • Woolly Designs(Tracy Eichheim) top-whorl plying spindle, 2.1 oz, 20-inch shaft
  • Jenkins Turkish spindle, 1.4 oz
  • Woolly Designs (Tracy Eichheim) top whorl spindle, 1.1 oz Kokopelli
  • Phil Powell Shape Spindle (dipper style)
  • Running Moon Farm stone spindle (ca 1 oz)
  • Grafton Navajo spindle
  • Texas Jeans Tibetan support spindle
  • Jim Leslie Russian support spindle
  • Majacraft Rose spinning wheel

  • Louet Victoria wheel
  • pre-1881 Norwegian double-drive wheel (sorry, you can’t replace/duplicate this one; it was a rescue from the family)
  • Hansen miniSpinner

  • Strauch Petite drum carder
  • Pat Green Supercard

  • Acorn 5-pitch Fine English wool combs
  • Valkyrie wool combs, especially the Extrafines and Superfines (but really, everything in the line)

  • Strauch handcards; I’m partial to the student size because they fit my hands a little better.
