I am wondering of any spinners can enlighten me with their wheel experiences. I am looking to purchase my first spinning wheel, but I am really overwhelmed with the number of options/types/etc. I have previously spun on an Ashford Kiwi (double treadle, single drive) and picked it up really fast and enjoyed it. However, I am concerned that I could very quickly outgrow it. I would rather spend a few hundred dollars more in order to have a wheel that would last. Does anyone have experience with a wheel that would be good to essentially learn on, but would then grow with me, allowing me to advance without having to purchase another wheel. I would be using this wheel to spin thin yarn. Also, what is the difference in ease of use between single and double treadle wheels?
Imbue me with your knowledge and personal experiences! Thanks in advance!
