This weekend I had the opportunity to teach Holly (age 11) and Emily (age 13) how to card art batts and how to spin yarn. They both loved it. The SpinOlution Firefly was such an easy wheel for them to learn on, because they could start learning drafting fiber right away. They will pick up treadling on another wheel once they build confidence.
I love it when my students have fun learning, and sometimes I find that treadling can make the multi-tasking learning curve of spinning a bit frustrating for some spinners. But on an electric wheel, like the SpinOlution firefly, that's out of the picture! Here are some fun shots from our fiber playdate.
