I love my Aura. As a Saori Weaver I wanted to spin wild art yarn, so the Aura was the wheel I was most keen to own. Her versatility amazes me. I think this is a major "pro" for this wheel. I have an Ashford Country Spinner but I haven't used it since I bought my Aura. My Aura does any art yarn I can conceive and is so much more beautiful and easier to use than the Country Spinner. I can also set her up to do a fine yarn. The giant bobbins on the Country Spinner make it really awful to use for anything other than a bulky art yarn. The great thing is that if its those huge bobbins you love then you get the Aura Overdrive. Majacraft has everything covered with this one wheel. My Aura has really taken my spinning to another level because I have so much control over how she performs. I cannot recommend this wheel enough. Come along to The Churn Room to try her out for yourself. I will help you get acquainted!
