Spinning Bees I have designed and produced a line of hand-spinning tools that include a chakra-type spinner, an electric spinner, and a "punked" wheel. Following are pictures and descriptions.
The Baby Bee The "Baby Bee" is an excellent tool for artisans who want a simple, inexpensive, easily transported spinning tool. Lightweight -- with a handle built in -- yet sturdy, these spinners are basic spindle-devises. They work beautifully with short-staple fibers such as cotton and most wools. Great for beginners.
The "Punked" Bee "Steampunk" describes a style that incorporates re-cycled, up-cycled, vintage and re-purposed materials. These unique spinning wheels are fully functional, operate similarly to traditional "high" wheels, and are sculptures as well.
