Paradise Fibers-Ashford Joy Spinning Wheel
From paradisefibers.com: The Ashford Joy Spinning Wheel is the solution to portable hand spinning. You can take this spinning wheel with you wherever you go! Enjoy a great quality portable spinning wheel from Ashford New Zealand that won't break the bank. The revolutionary design is ultra light weight and folds up to fit inside a custom carry bag. I'll add that the bobbins are really inexpensive for this wheel which is a plus (about 1/3 the price of say...Louet bobbins). This wheel is very stable and a great choice for Features a built in lazy kate so you can leave your bobbins on it while it's in the carry bag which is a very convenient feature. The tension is easy to adjust and bobbins are easy to change. The ratios on this wheel will go fast enough to spin cotton. I should add Rachel here at the shop is spinning a skein of stretched merino (Optim) fiber and creating an absolutely magical skein of lace weight yarn. She personally prefers to use either our Lendrum here at the shop or the Joy depending on her mood and yarn she's trying to spin. You may want to check out the other portable wheels we offer here at the shop including the Lendrum Spinning Wheel, Victoria Spinning Wheel & the Kromski Sonata Spinning Wheel. Call us directly anytime with questions and ask for "Dad" as he is our wheel tech here at the shop.
A handful of skeins of this yarn is hanging out in my purse too. It's mostly wool (so it's warm!) but has a tiny bit of silk which makes it shiny. I like the color changes in this yarn, which made it perfect for the finished scar... A handful of skeins of this yarn is hanging out in my purse too.

I like the color changes in this yarn, which made it perfect for the finished scarf I made out of it and makes it perfect for the hat I'm currently knitting.
