My husband hasn't spun yarn in over ten years, and tonight I asked if he'd like to try the Mach iii. I gave him a bit of carded merino while I folded laundry and Samspun played a puzzle on his tablet. After some adjustments, Brian decided he preferred the biggest whorl with medium uptake.
When he was done spinning I asked him what he thought and he said:
"I've only spun on one other wheel. This one feels nice and solid compared to the other one. The control feels really fine tuned. That was fun! I'd like to do that again."
Maybe someday we'll become the Martineau Family Spinners. Until then, it's time to put Sam to bed. Goodnight.
