I'm in the market for a new wheel, preferably something that folds and/or is significantly more portable than my current Ashford Traditional. Aside from that, my two other deciding factors will be:
1) Cost. (I doubt I can convince someone to offer me the gift of a lovely new wheel, and the non-profit salary doesn't allow for much disposable income. I'm thinking something in the $250--$400 range.)
2) Bigger bobbins than my Ashford. Her petite little bobbins are cute, but coming up with short skein after short skein is starting to get annoying.
I discovered the Fricke wheels this morning, and I was wondering if:
1) Anybody has one?
2) Anybody has ever used one? (At a fair, festival, shop, or otherwise)
3) Anybody might be able to recommend something else that fits my criteria that might be a better fit for my preferences.
Thanks for the help, everybody!
