Aura and pluckyfluff

The day that was at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

The temperature was HOT, and Aura, Lexi and Owen were definitely HOT among the Majacraft fans who came to see the unveiling of the latest spinning wheel. (Note Lexi's nonchalant attitude as if saying, "There's nothing to it!" and the admirer's amazement.)

Videos of spinning novelty yarn (here) and spinning regular kind (here). Lexi created both types of yarn without adjusting settings. Owen Poad, the design engineer behind Aura, says he would have to change settings to do that, but he adds, "Lexi is very clever with it as she has used it a lot."
