Schacht Ladybug with extras!

Or trade for a Pollywog

From the Etsy description where I bought it:
"The Ladybug Spinning Wheel is friendly to entry-level spinners, easy to treadle, easy to take with you. Designed-in carrying handles in the legs and being light weight make the Ladybug easy to pick up and transport. 
The Ladybug Spinning Wheel uses Scotch tension, and can also be used in double drive mode. 

Included with each Schacht Ladybug Spinning Wheel are a poly drive band, threading hook, three travel bobbins (about 4oz), medium and fast whorls, and double drive band. Each Ladybug Spinning Wheel is unique - somewhere on your wheel is your very own Ladybug pal."

The extras are:
•Bulky Plyer Flyer Kit which includes a generously-sized 7/8" orifice, large capacity bobbin (about 8 oz), sliding flyer hooks with incremental stops, and large round guide hooks. The Bulky Plyer Flyer comes with its own special front maiden, bulky flyer, and bulky bobbin. 
•Extra Bulky Bobbin
•Extra Travel Bobbin
•Attached tensioned Lazy Kate 
•High Speed Whorl

I am selling her because I'm not using her as often as I thought I would. 
She is like new and makes lovely yarns.

Fiber Free to a Good Home

I placed an add here 2 years ago, giving away fiber that I no longer want.  I've finally gone through the rest of my stash and here is the rest of the fiber looking for a home.

The fiber I want to get rid of is in good condition (I have thrown the bad stuff away), but it is very old.  It has been stored in an unheated shed with a very good roof.  The fiber is in muslin bags (moths don’t eat through cotton), in large plastic boxes (to keep larger critters out).  In other words, it has been stored dry but not temperature controlled.  I’m not giving away any fiber that is felted, mildewed or attacked by moths.

All fleeces were washed soon after I bought them and stored clean. Most of the roving was bought processed.  A few fleeces were sent away for processing and came back as bumps.

It is free, but I am asking for postage and the price of boxes.

All that said, here is what I would like to find new homes for:

 

ROMNEY ROVING; dark gray; 24 oz; bought in 04; soft for a romney

FINNSHEEP FLEECE; white; 27 oz; bought in 08; very soft but very short staple

CORMO ROVING; red/orange multi; 3 oz; bought in 04

ALPACA ROVING; dark brown; 7.1 oz; bought in 09

SHETLAND ROVING; white, gray, black; 36 oz (3 rovings each color, 4 oz each); bought in 03

ROMNEY FLEECE; white/silver; 55 oz; (can be split) bought in 03

ROMNEY FLEECE; variegated light to dark silver; 34 oz; bought in 01; long staple, high luster, medium soft

CORRIEDALE FLEECE; brown/silver; 49 oz; bought in 05; only medium soft for a Corrie

ROMNEY LOCKS; blue green multi; 9.6 oz; bought in 01

ROMNEY FLEECE; white; 94 oz; (can be split) bought in 03; beautiful and clean but not very soft

MOHAIR ROVING; off white; 6 oz

LINCOLN/WENSLEYDALE x CORMO FLEECE; 24.8 oz; bought in 06

ROMNEY FLEECE; silver/gray; 82.9 oz (can split this one); bought in 04; medium soft

ROMNEY/SUFFOLK ROVING; white; 2 bumps 23 oz and 21 oz; medium soft

FS: Mirrix Zeus Loom + Extras

NEARLY New Mirrix Zeus Loom $525

This loom is partially assembled (the top comes off the bottom to make 2 -  23"x39" pieces  and to ship it would mean that the box would be -- oversized.  We figure it would cost around $85 to ship to the west coast From Cleveland -- Keep that in mind if you live far away!

I am willing to work out a meet up if it is convenient -- I live in the Cleveland Area.

This Loom Comes with 

  • 3 sets of Mirrix heddles, pre-cut -- 300 heddles
  • coil springs: 8, 10, 12, 14 18 -- which is on extra coil
  • sticky ruler tape that reads in both directions for easy warping. (It is in 2 rolls and not on the loom yet so if you don’t want to put it on, you don’t have to.)

Retail would be $643.50 not including shipping or taxes. ($540.00 for loom, 3 rolls of heddles $85.50, and extra 10 epi coil $18.00)
