I designed a spinning wheel made from cardboard. It really works! I used it to spin up a bunch of wool and alpaca fiber. I plied some of the wool to use as weft and then I made a little mini-rug with the yarn.
I posted all the information about building a cardboard wheel on my web page. You are free to use the design to build yourself one.
I'd be happy to answer any questions about making a cardboard spinning wheel. I'd also like to hear if anyone builds a cardboard spinning wheel for their own use.
Have a good day!
