Betty Roberts "Cotton Eater" spinning wheel [sold]
Betty Roberts has been making spinning wheels for over 25 years. This woman does incredible work! She has been honored twice by the Folk Life Society, and is one of 12 women in the state of Washington to win the Governor's Art award. Her wheels are hard to find, should be treated like national treasures
This beautiful custom rare spinning wheel (the one Betty is looking at, left) is for sale. This accelerated wheel was Betty's and she dubbed it the cottoneater because you can create fine yarn with it. The inlays have a light pink tint (flash in the photo makes it look like the inlay background is white.)
It spins like a dream!
Wheel includes 9 bobbins and a bobbin stand.
