I'd love to learn about wheels. I sent you pm, but if you want to chat here, is fine too. For my budget, I am looking at the Heavenly Handspinning Navitas and the Hitchhiker at Woolery. The first one I took interest in because I have so much fiber and it has an electric option. Some of the feedback from people was that it's helpful if you have a lot of yarn to make. When I did ask other spinners about this, most felt the electric option was not necessary, so I would love thoughts on that. The Hitchhiker was recommended by a friend. Most people tell me a double treadle is preferable. What questions should I be asking as I research my first wheel? I'm also interested in the Calypso kick spindle from Heavenly Handspinning only because I wondered if it might be a good fit for a rug yarn from llama fiber... But please correct me on my thoughts and assumptions!

how is your search coming?? have you narrowed it down yet? it really depends on the kind of yarn you want to make and how quickly. an electric is the opposite end of the spectrum from the kick spindle. i think a basic wheel like the navitas or hitchhiker would be a great first wheel!
