This is probably an easy question for the experts, but I just got into spinning and my mother-in-law gave me her wheel. It was made by the Hutterites, but thats all I know and I would like to learn how to use it, but I need to know more about it in order to find instructions. Thanks for any help anyone can offer!

Sorry, I can't give you any more specifics about your wheel.
But If you'd like to know what the different parts are for, the spinners here should be able to label the parts on your wheel for you.
Would you like that?
I'm pretty sure I can label a number of parts and functions on yours.

I'm not an expert, but your wheel seems to have all the parts I would expect to see. You'll need to tie on a new drive band. The preferred cord is called seine twine, but I've used cotton Peaches and Cream yarn in the past.

Your flyer that goes around the bobbin should have some cup hooks to arrange the yarn as you spin.

Your bobbin has a unique half round shape that was common on Reeves spinning wheels. We used to have a Reeves, pictures on my web page
http://rabbitgeek.com/bobbin.html

There is a link on that page to a person who makes replacement bobbins.

Have a good day!

Thanks for your help, I think I might take it into the local fibre arts guild meeting and see if they can teach me to use it. This way maybe they can help me get it set up also. I appreciate your responses. Have a great day everyone!
