The great wheel was one of the earlier types of spinning wheel. The long-draw is used, which requires one active hand mostly, freeing the other hand to turn the wheel. The large drive wheel turns the much smaller spindle assembly, with the spindle revolving many times for each turn of the drive wheel. The yarn is spun at an angle off the tip of the spindle, where it is then stored. Join us in learning this timeless tradition.
