It’s holiday shopping crunch time! Last week we shared a list of great last minute gifts for knitters and crocheters, so this week we wanted to help you shop for the spinners and weavers in your life.

We’ve rounded up ten affordable items that you could gift your favorite fiber artist:

Spinning

Bobbins

If your fiber artist owns an Ashford spinning wheel, an Ashford Spinner Maintenance Kit would make a great gift! The kit includes everything they need to keep their wheel in tip-top shape for its entire life. (Just ask us about our staff member who’s still spinning on a 30 year old wheel!)

Niddy Noddy
