New addition

Check out the new addition to my spinning wheel family, Wiebke (the “W” is pronounced as a “V”)
Wiebke is a Dutch wheel I bought on Ebay from the Netherlands.  The brand is Spoelstra, which I’m not familiar with, but it is a very interesting wheel.   It’s a clanky, creaky wheel, but I love it. Lots of character. Spins nicely so far.  It is an Irish tension wheel.  There is a small knob to turn on the front maiden/mother of all for tension.  It is very different from my Fricke (who is Wilma by the way).  It takes a bit getting used to, but it’s a fun wheel.  I think I made a good purchase so far.
