Australian Spinning Wheels

Ron Doley spinning wheelPeople often think Ashford when they think spinning wheelsย  and they are very good, reliable wheels. Australia, though, has made so many spinning wheels and we don’t often hear about the makers. We had Ron Doley at our group the other week to present Marina’s new carder which he had made. Alan uses one of his spinning wheels. Ron’s wheel are featured on the Australian Spinning Wheels site. Our group uses a mix of manual and electric spinning wheels according to people’s preferences and needs. It would be good to take a closer look at what we use over the coming weeks. The Australian Spinning Wheels site has some mystery wheels which they cannot identify. Maybe you can?

There are still many gaps. If you can help with photos or information, please contact
