This is more of a plan for someday than something to do in the immediate future, but I'm considering getting another wheel. My current wheels is really one of the best their is, I bought it when I still had money, but it has a relatively small orifice for they type of projects I like to make from time to time. Sometimes I want to try out whacky things like making a 7 ply yarn, big felt inclusions. or Tailspun yarn big enough to be a boa after you chain stitch it. But I just can't do stuff like that with my wheel. I love my wheel, but it would be so nice to be able to make really crazy yarns. I've done some research on this topic, and found the Majacraft Aura, and the Ashford(I think ashford) Country spinner. I want to know if there are any others, and which ones are good. Also I've tried doing some of this stuff on a drop spindle, but I have trouble finding drop spindles that are the right size for making these kinds of things, and I'm not that fond of using a drop spindle anyways, I mostly use one If I'm traveling.
