Last photo to share for now of the Super Skeiner. I’m looking forward to not having to hand count my yardage w00t! #AkerworksNiddyNiddy #AkerworksYarnWinder #AkerworksSkeinWinder #AkerworksSuperShoulderSaverSkeiner #AkerworksSuperSkeiner #Akerworks #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #niddynoddy #skeinwinder #yarnwinder


Loving the new handle for he Super Skeiner. It reminds me a lot of the Trillium spindle whorl. #AkerworksNiddyNiddy #AkerworksYarnWinder #AkerworksSkeinWinder #AkerworksSuperShoulderSaverSkeiner #AkerworksSuperSkeiner #Akerworks #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #niddynoddy #skeinwinder #yarnwinder


All the pieces of the @akerworks Super Skeiner. I love how everything stores on he stand making it super portable! It’s amazing to think that this one Skeiner can do 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, and 3 yard skeins! #AkerworksNiddyNiddy #AkerworksYarnWinder #AkerworksSkeinWinder #AkerworksSuperShoulderSaverSkeiner #AkerworksSuperSkeiner #Akerworks #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #niddynoddy #skeinwinder #yarnwinder

Got a sweet Züca bag while they were massively discounted for Labor Day. I’ve been kitting it out and prepping for @oregonflockandfiberfest. I decided it needed some swag from my favorite makers so I’ve added an @akerworks sticker and 2 keychains to it. I didn’t have any swag from @daedalusspinningwheels that would fit on it so I designed up this keychain with permission from Dave. One of a kind(not making them for sale). I’m planning on taking Luna the Blackbird as well as Bumbles the Starling XL to OFFF along with a variety of Akerworks tools in case anyone wants to try them out. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #daedalusspinningwheels #daedalusblackbird #blackbirdespinner #daedalusstarling #starlingespinner #starlingspinner #3dprinted


Finished spinning the sample of Straw into Gold by @newhuehandspuns on my Jenkins Phoenix. Little bitty Bee Hummingbird for size reference. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #turkishspindle

These two colorways are just so happy! Summer Jubilee and Light on Leaves by @threewatersfarm. Bumbles the Starling XL was printed and assembled by me with permission from the original designer/maker @daedalusspinningwheels. Bobbins were custom modeled and printed by me. #daedalusspinningwheels #electricspinningwheel #spinnersofinstagram #spinallthethings #spinallthefiber #spinstagram #espinner #spinningwheel #spinningyarn #fleece2yarn #handspunstagram #igspinners #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #fiberyfun365 #3dprinting #starlingspinner #twfsept19 #threewatersfarm

I wrote a review on the amazing AkerKate by @Akerworks for tinyStudio Creative Life Magazine issue 4! This Lazy Kate is definitely NOT LAZY! In this article I discuss the variety of ways the AkerKate can be used besides the traditions usage as a bobbin Lazy Kate. I use it as Spindle Kate, a Yarn Caddy when knitting, with the Spindle Crane, and I’m looking forward to using it the next time I warp my ridged heddle loom.

I cannot believe how big this spindle is yet how light it feels while it flies! This is my new Jenkins Phoenix. It weighs in at 34.48g and is made out of Juniper. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #turkishspindle


Ed Jenkins’s smallest and largest style of Turkish Spindle. Smallest shown here is my Bee Hummingbird made of Beeswing Narra weighing only 3.28g and largest shown is the Phoenix made of Juniper weighing in at 34.48g. My Phoenix is I think the lightest one so far. The average weight of the Phoenix style is mid 40s and the range is mid 30s-low 50 grams. #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #turkishspindle


On Friday a wonderful new Jenkins Turkish Spindle flew into my flock. Ed created another incredible style to add to his wonderful line up of Turkish Spindles. The largest spindle shown the Phoenix is what arrived. It is Ed’s largest spindle, modeled after the Egret but with a wider wingspan which can allow for even more plying capacity. I’m not a spindle plyer however I loved the Egret for fine spinning and had a strong feeling I’d love the Phoenix for fine spinning as well. Other Jenkins depicted are the Swan(heaviest style), Egret(former widest wingspan), and Bee Hummingbird(smallest). #handspunstagram #spinstagram #igspinners #spinnersofinstagram #handspun #handspunyarn #fiberfeature #wemakeyarn #jenkinsturkishspindle #turkishspindle
