The Alpaca Spinner offers one-to-one tuition in spinning

Most people who are thinking of buying a spinning wheel can learn enough in just an hour or two to enable them to spin and choose a wheel from the many Ashford models that are permanently set up to use including the E-Spinner

Anyone new to spinning will benefit greatly from just a couple of hours spent with either Lizzy or Linzi (qualified teacher) - either with their own wheel or one of theirs

Experienced spinners can gain improvement in technique and lots of tips and help in adapting to using their yarn

All tuition is entirely focussed on your individual needs, abilities, pace and learning style and is FUN !!


  • Try different wheels
  • Hire a wheel to practise on
  • Buy a wheel and have a free lesson
  • Try different types of fleece
  • Or just come and play for free for a while BEFORE you decide to make it a formal lesson!

Special Courses £50

  • Spinning for Knitting & Crochet
  • Spinning for Lacemaking & Embroidery
  • Spinning for Weaving
  • Spinning for Design



The Alpaca Spinner is a highly experienced and qualified teacher who guarantees to get you spinning with confidence & understanding in just a couple of hours!

Lessons are based in Leicestershire or Northamptonshire and tuition is strictly one-to-one, ensuring the best possible individual attention

You can hire a wheel (£25 per week) after your lesson so you can continue to practise (please leave the value of the wheel as a deposit) and if you buy a new wheel when you return, your hire costs are fully refunded!

If you buy a wheel while you are here, you will not be charged for a lesson up to two hours and there is never any pressure to buy

If you already have your own wheel or just want to learn as a challenge; for £20 an hour, you pay for knowledge and understanding to quickly become an independent learner

The Alpaca Spinner promises not to bite
(well, not
toooo much)

Daisy (aged 10) shows me how to do it!

(not sure about the Crocs though)
